Red Sox Release Statement About Mitchell Report

The Red Sox released the following statement about the recent findings by former Sen. George Mitchell:

“The Boston Red Sox have supported and fully cooperated with this investigation initiated by Commissioner Selig and conducted by Senator Mitchell. The Senator and his staff should be thanked and commended for their dedicated and independent efforts in producing this important report.

It is imperative that we continue to educate our players on the dangers and unfairness of performance enhancing drugs and to do everything we can to eliminate them entirely from the game of baseball.

We are confident that that adoption and implementation of Major League Baseball’s and the Major League Baseball Players Association’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, the toughest in all of professional sports, will also result in helping to achieve this goal.”

  1. hah of course they are going to say that. With no current sox named in the report they look like saints.

    Gagne is gone and donnaley was never really part of the team.

    Guess thats what you get when one of your organization’s Directors is the lead investigator.

  2. Mitchell is withholding the names of current Red Sox players :P…just kidding

    Although I’m sure there are a ton more players who were smart enough to use cash for the transactions or find dealers who don’t get caught…
