Steroids and Baseball

The Mitchell Report was released today. It doesn't look good for baseball. A lot of big names have been linked to Steroid use. The report makes a good decision by calling out baseball as a whole as part of the problem. I do not see any good coming from this for the MLB.

Of course if the MLB was smart they could possibly use this report to do some good and restore integrity to the game. If I were commissioner, I would institute a policy that every player mentioned in the report or caught using steroids in the future will be banned from the MLB with all records stripped from the record books if they do not donate time or money to anti-steroid programs across the country. The MLB banned Pete Rose for life for being greedy and breaking the law, and using steroids is both greedy and illegal.
