Seems they are going to call out some names. Should be interesting.
ormer Sen. George Mitchell has called a 2 p.m. ET news conference for Thursday at the Grand Hyatt hotel to release the results of his committee's 20-month investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball.
MLB.com will carry Mitchell's news conference live. The report itself will be posted at MLB.com shortly after it is released.
Mitchell is a director of the Boston Red Sox, and was chairman of The Walt Disney Co., the parent of ESPN, at the time Commissioner Bud Selig established the committee on March 30, 2006, charging it with leaving "no stone unturned" in its quest to determine what happened in baseball's so-called steroid era.
How many players will be named in the report is unknown, but as important as the number are the names themselves. In recent years, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Gary Sheffield, Jose Canseco and the late Ken Caminiti, among others, have all been linked to reports of steroid use.
