Mitchell Investigation day

Today is set to be a real UGLY day for Major League Baseball. The Mitchell Report is gonna go public around 12:00 CT. It sounds as if 60-80 players could be named. Their will be some real prominent players named including a pitcher many have called the greatest of the modern era. According to the 4-letter network it looks like Fat Roger is gonna be named by the Mithchell Investigation. Gee who didn't see that one coming?

A former New York Yankee strength trainer says information he supplied to the George Mitchell investigation regarding supplying Roger Clemens with steroids is included in the Mitchell report scheduled to be released later today, a source close to the trainer told ESPN The Magazine's Shaun Assael.

Brian McNamee, who worked for the Yankees and as a personal trainer for Clemens and Yankee teammates Andy Pettitte, also told investigators that on at least one occasion, Clemens was in possession of steroids from another supplier, the source said.

The source said McNamee told investigators he supplied Clemens with steroids while Clemens was witih the Yankees, and prior to Clemens joining the team.
