Mitchell Report Day! Ready for Old News Repackaged as Fresh News? Cause That's What This Roger Clemens Business Is

There’s really no news to report at this time. Will the list really “rock” baseball? The guess here is that maybe it will for a few hours … and then we’ll turn our attention back to the Patriots and their quest for immortality. Still not sure why the New York papers are so stunned to see all these connections to Roger Clemens. (This is now BREAKING NEWS on ESPN. Gimmie a break. This is OLD NEWS. Jason Grimsley sold him out in 2006.) And this “several prominent Yankees” business is so overrated. Will Giambi, Rocket and Pettitte really surprise people? Maybe people that missed the Oct. 2006 report in the LA Times will be surprised.

ESPN’s new investigative dynamic duo spoke to a few people who have seen the report, but … there’s no actual news to be found. (Here’s a popular list of names that is circulating, but we sure as hell hope it’s more interesting than that.) Speaking of names … what’s the over/under on Scott Boras clients that are named? He’s got about 20 (not sure how accurate that list is), so should we set the line at three?

And lastly, our baseball friend (we’ll unveil his revenue-sharing idea soon) actually had a 1-on-1 “serious” Mitchell Investigation draft (the kind that goes 1-2-2-1-1-2-2-1 etc), and after the jump, how it panned out:
