…. Still kicking around

Well, no one seems to care too much about the “letter,” so, since I have a taste of internet access, I thought I’d mention the recent John Donovan article about the Mitchell investigation:

…. If the truth is to be known — how prevalent were steroids in baseball, how damaging, who knew about their use, how were they allowed to take hold and, maybe, take over the game? — D.C. might be the only place it’s to be found.

“I think that’s very likely,” former baseball commissioner Fay Vincent told me recently from his home in Florida. “The public, I suspect, will be very supportive of Mitchell. And the Congress will be delighted. They’ll all look very good.”

When Selig picked Mitchell last March to take the investigation “wherever it may lead,” the commissioner surely must have hoped it would not wind its way back to Washington. But over the past 10-plus months, through what Mitchell has said are hundreds of interviews, mostly with employees of the 30 teams, the former Senator from Maine has run into too many closed mouths and too many obstacles, legal and otherwise. He told owners as much last month in a meeting in Phoenix, threatening — not so subtly — to use his influence with his former colleagues in Congress if necessary. “I can tell you from personal experience,” Mitchell said, “if they get involved, they almost certainly will use their subpoena power and everyone will be forced to cooperate.”
