Mitchell Report: The Links

Well, the Mitchell Report is out, so I guess congratulations are in order for those who paid in cash. Also, congrats to the Astros on that Miguel Tejada trade. I'm sure that will really go over well with the fans. And finally, congrats to Jose Canseco for being right on all of these guys.
The links are flowing in fast and furious, so here we go:
Also from the Mitchell Report:
"In a July 1996 article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Ron Cook analyzed the possible explanations for the season of dramatic power hitting. Among other possible reasons, Cook wrote: "There are other factors, to be sure. Hitters are bigger and stronger. (Can you say steroids, ladies and gentlemen)." He quoted Jim Leyland, then the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, as saying: "I'd swear on a stack of bibles we don't have steroids on this team . . . butI wouldn't know about the rest of baseball." The article also reported estimates that as many as 35% of major-league players were using steroids and noted that Jose Canseco and Lenny Dykstra had been taunted by fans for their alleged steroid use."

Mitchell to Selig:
"ok so i dug up dirt on all these guys and i am going to make a big deal about it, but just so you know my findings aren't backed by enough solid evidence for you to discipline anyone based off of my report alone. so there you go."

Selig:
"um...ok. --long pause-- How much are we paying for this again?"
