Mitchell report: Big Bang inside MLB.

After a 20 months investigation concerning the use of performance enhancing drugs by Major League Baseball players, the ex-senator George Mitchell released the identity of a list of players who are said to have used performance enhancing drugs.

The list of players contained in the Mitchell report is simply impressive. Over 70 names are mentionned in the report. And NONE of the 30 MLB teams are spared, each and every MLB club has at least one player in the list.

The shockwave doesn’t spare the province of Quebec as the 2003 Cy Young winner Eric Gagné’s name is present in the Mitchell report. Gagné is said to have contacted an ex-New-York Mets employee, Kirk Radomski, and told him he was interested in buying growth hormones for himself. Radomski said that catcher Paul Lo Duca was used as an intermediate for Gagné as he signed two checks of $3200 each in a 6 weeks span during 2004.

Here is the soon to be famous list of players contained in the Mitchell report:
