The Mitchell Report

Brian Roberts was one of many mentioned in The Mitchell Report which was downloaded 1.8 million times in the first 3 hours after its release yesterday.

Taken from page 158 (actual page #, page 206 if you use the Adobe Pages option on the left) of the Mitchell Report:

Brian Roberts
Brian Roberts is an infielder who has played for the Baltimore Orioles since 2001. He has been selected to two All-Star teams.

Roberts and Larry Bigbie were both rookies in 2001. According to Bigbie, both
he and Roberts lived in Segui's house in the Baltimore area during the latter part of that season. When Bigbie and Segui used steroids in the house, Roberts did not participate.

According to Bigbie, however, in 2004 Roberts admitted to him that he had
injected himself once or twice with steroids in 2003. Until this admission, Bigbie had never suspected Roberts of using steroids.

In order to provide Roberts with information about these allegations and to give him an opportunity to respond, I asked him to meet with me; he declined.


While, intellectually, I know that one or two uses of steroids 4 years ago isn't going to produce results (I mean, have you *seen* the little guy? *grin*), it's still a little disappointing/disheartening to have his name linked to this. :( Of course, in my heart of hearts, I'm just thinking that Bigbie is a big, fat liar and this is 100% untrue. :)

I haven't read the whole thing yet (it's 400+ pages!) but, man, I hope something good comes out of this!

Also, there's rumor/theory/speculation that Barry Bonds might have been warned about upcoming tests.
