Mitchell report nothing new for Cards fans
St. Louis – The Mitchell Report on doping in major league baseball did not make a big splash here in St. Louis.
Former Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire is not on any of the lists that implicate players for using or buying steroids and performance-enhancing drugs.
However former Senator George Mitchell said in the report he tried to speak with McGwire about his 2005 congressional testimony, where McGwire refused to answer questions about steroid abuse.
Before it was released, several media outlets mistakenly reported Albert Pujols as being on the list, but his name is not anywhere in the report whatsoever.
However outfielder Rick Ankiel and former Cardinals infielder David Bell are among those cited for alleged Internet purchases of performance-enhancing substances.
