The Mitchell Report is only hours away from being delivered by a fleet of juiced up reindeer flying down from the North Pole at Mach 3. Or at least, that’s the vibe I’m getting from ESPN.
Just yesterday, Sportscenter opened with “Christmas comes early for Major League Baseball, Thursday. If Christmas is a damaging report that could ruin the credibility of the game.” Um, actually, my Christmases usually had more G.I. Joes and Batman figurines. But maybe I wasn’t on the naughty list.
I believe what “that troll-looking younger guy who is an anchor now” (as my esteemed colleague at The Cut called him) meant to say was, “Christmas comes early for Major League Baseball writers.” Because, yes, to them, Christmas is a damaging report that could ruin the credibility of the game.
In fact, I can just picture the crew of Baseball Tonight huddled together with sleeping bags on the set, anxiously awaiting the big day — visions of Barry Bonds’ sugar plum-shaped noggin dancing through their heads. I just hope the report is sent to the media wrapped in a pretty little bow with some tinsel.
Stay tuned for more from The FynalCut on the Mitchell Report. Dwi Guy will lay out his plans for HGH Baseball 2008, the video game.
