Mitchell Report @ 2 p.m. Sharp

As everyone knows, the revered Mitchell Report will be released this afternoon with MLB Commish Bud Selig to speak on the matter around 4:30, following the initial press conference.

From all I'm hearing, the Yankees are in for a long day. Don't expect to hear Derek Jeter and Mickey Mantle were juicers, but some feathers are sure to be ruffled. Surprisingly, the Mets do not seem to have as substantial a stake in today's proceedings.

On the whole, this will be good for baseball. I am curious to see how it all plays out, but I am simultaneously skeptical about what evidence Mr. Mitchell has to support his claims.

Because, if the sole informant and source for evidence is a former bat-boy and clubhouse attendant for the Amazin's, then players, teams and fans will be quick to disregard the whole shindig.
