The Mitchell Report

I have been listening to all the erudite analysis and commentary on the recent release of the Mitchell Report on performance enhancing drug usage in Major League Baseball. One of the major questions that has been batted around was whether or not any of these players would or should be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. They all sound like little St. Peters debating whether or not these people should be allowed into heaven.

Perhaps the best way to really make progress on this issue is not only by better drug testing, but a class action lawsuit by paying fans and advertisers against the league, the union, and the players to recoup some of the money taken by cheaters and frauds.
