    Nice work Jason – very informative and insightful.  Agree with conclusion that Mitre is taking the better approach as the blame game approach Romero utilized gives the appearance of covering up.  Without tangible evidence to support ones claims our judgement on whether to believe either is based largely on how they respond to the matter and it appears that Mitre may be more believable.  The old adage ‘less is more’ certainly applies here.

    Thanks Moose.  The problem is we don’t know what we don’t know…

    But if we’ve learned anything from the Clemens Debacle (as Shyster has gone thru to the very end) is that the more you bark and scream and yell, the more people are going to look at the things you are saying and wonder why you are saying them.

    To me, the smoking gun was the email from the MLBPA General Counsel effectively calling BS on Romero’s claims.

    It seems that only Carroll (and perhaps the Inquirer) reported the warning had always been on the label.  Other sources claim that Romero showed MLB a bottle that did not contain the warning.  Once again, we don’t know for sure who to believe.

    I think people handle accusations of guilt in different ways.  Some accept their punishment and some protest.  I’m not sure one way indicates guilt more than another.  I don’t think Clemens was guilty as sin because of how he responded to the Mitchell Report; I think he was guilty because of the evidence contained in the Mitchell Report.

    So any commentary on what it means that a guy who won 50% of his teams wins in the WS was a cheater? I assume that goes as an asterick somewhere in the record book, right?
