Mitchell’s Damocletian Sword Redux

On Wednesday we wondered here as to the effect of the Mitchell drug investigation this off-season, and why no paper seemed to be covering it. Today, as if on cue, the NYT chimes in with a piece by Michael Schmidt reporting that as many as 11 free-agents will be named in the report. The lead baseball story in the paper, with a big photo, was on the potential movement of Johan Santana, ostensibly to the Yankees. Also, MLBPA warned the league about potential collusive practices regarding a certain player, name undisclosed, but our guess is it’s the guy who opted out during the WS.

  • It is curious why this watershed moment in baseball (regarding the Mitchell investigation) is met with such indifference; maybe it is because to anybody on the outside of baseball, it smells like a telling of what everyone who was at the party will cop to regarding their involvement in the crack in the broken piece of glass on the mantle in the mansion.

    This story was broken by the Globe, not the Times.
