Tis the Steroid Season - Mitchell Report Out Today (2pm EST)

Crazy day. There are various rumors out there on who is named in the George Mitchell report on steroids in baseball. There is a press conference today at 2pm EST and ESPN is having 6 straight hours of coverage from 1pm-7pm. MLB Commissioner is expected to have a press conference around 4:30pm EST. Who will be on the list? Well there are some foregone conclusions (Sosa, Bonds, McGwire, etc.). Well there is a pretty hefty list circulating the internet now and rumor mongers are claiming the list is pretty accurate. Only time will tell. The steroid list is below (taken from Deadspin). I've highlighted some big name/surprising players. Remember, these are based on rumors, not facts. The truth is told at 2pm.

So glad that Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, and Cole Hamels aren't on the rumor list. Let's hope they aren't on the real list, either.
