Has The Steroid List Been Leaked?

The site rotoinfo.com has a post up today titled, 2003 steroid list leaks out? . It mentions nothing about where it came from or how it came about. It simply says "rumored steroid list" and lists the names. I want to stress that this is purely a rumor at this point. I'm not sure I believe it but usually when there's smoke, there's fire. The thing I find most odd about the list is that it seems to be grouped by team. I would think an official list wouldn't quite go that way, but that's just me. The list is pretty impressive. A lot of heavy hitters on it. Here is the list of Yankees and Red Sox on the list:

1.Nomar Garciaparra
2.Manny Ramirez
3.Johnny Damon
4.Trot Nixon
5.David Ortiz
6.Shea Hillenbrand
7.Derek Lowe
8.Pedro Martinez
13.Jason Giambi
14.Alfonso Soriano
15.Raul Mondesi
16. Aaron Boone
17.Andy Pettitte
18.Jose Contreras
19.Roger Clemens

Here's everyone else:

9.Brian Roberts
10.Jay Gibbons
11.Melvin Mora
12.Jerry Hairston
20.Carlos Delgado
21.Vernon Wells
22.Frank Catalanotto
23.Kenny Rogers
24.Magglio Ordonez
25.Sandy Alomar
26.Bartolo Colon
27.Brent Abernathy
28.Jose Lima
29.Milton Bradley
30.Casey Blake
31.Danys Baez
32.Craig Monroe

That's quite an impressive list. Part of me wants this list to be the real deal. I would love nothing more than to put this whole steroid thing behind us. Let's just get it over and done with. Having all those high-profile Red Sox on the list certainly wouldn't hurt much either. They need a dose of reality because many of the Sox fans I've come across seem to think their clubhouse for the most part was clean. The Yankee fan in me really wants it to be true. But until it's confirmed by a better source, I can't put much, if any, stock into it. I still can't get by the way the names are grouped. It looks like it's alphabetized by division. I think it's a little odd.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,

There are rumors this is the same list that came out just before the Mitchell Report...

Wow. This is some list. I'd like to see the players union make a statement, but I'm sure they won't.

This is not THE list from 2003 although each and every name listed belongs on it as well as 24 other names that do not appear. This list was compiled by a highly competent team of 'investigators' during the period 1999-2002 in order to provide MLB the means to 'blackmail' the MLBPA into agreeing to the supposedly anonymous testing of 2003.

That's something I've not heard before. Interesting. if you happen to come back to these comments I'd be interested to know more about it. Is that widely known or do you have some kind of inside info?

I think they won't, that list of rumored steroid list is not exactly sure. all that player is a professional I'm sure they won't.
