For the folks who think MLB’s own steroid investigation was about as ethical as the players’ alleged drug use, comes this tale of fishing, courtesy of Ken Davidoff. On more than one occasion, it seems as though George Mitchell and his team of investigators tried to catch a big fish by feeding subjects some names. While this hardly clears anyone named in the Mitchell Report, it certainly casts further doubts on the validity of this entire exercise. Maybe Mark McGwire was right after all when he told Congress he wasn’t there to talk about the past. It’s all just very murky water under the bridge.
