    According to the story, in the conference call today, teams were warned that names will be named, including high-profile players. Teams won't have the opportunity to review the report until after it is made public. This could be interesting. It's probably going to be released sometime between the WS and the new year.

    You know that it won't be released until after the World Series since MLB controls its release. And they also won't release it at a time when it might detract from the announcement of a postseason award. Of course, it could always be leaked.

    Thanks. No thread should be without a Seinfeld reference. Period.

    I'll be damned. Bud Selig works for the AHSAA too.

    It's got to be years since I've seen Office Space, b/c I had no idea McGinley was in it.

    This is bad news for the MLB. Multiple names including high profile players? Uh-oh

    Oh please, everyone knows it will be nothing but a bunch or Orioles. How high profile are they, really?

    Aside from confessions, how exactly is Mitchell going to name names in this report which has no legal standing? Player A said he saw played B do this without corroboration puts Mitchell and MLB in instant-litigation land.
