The Mitchell Report

I don't have a whole lot to add (besides the fact that I'll be on a self imposed boycott of ESPN for a few days- just like when there's any T.O., Vick or Bonds news) but I do have a couple thoughts.

If you're suprised that Roger Clemens is on this list, you are a fool. I mean, he's basically the Barry Bonds of pitchers (except that he's white and not as big of a douchebag).

The list... Ctrl+F: "Boone" = 0 hits. Ctrl+F: "Beltre" = 0 hits. Ctrl+F: "McGwire" = 0 hits. Ctrl+F: "Sosa" = 0 hits. Ctrl+F: "Palmeiro" = 0 hits. Ctrl+F: "Gonzalez" (as in Juan) = 0 hits.
Ctrl+F: "Ivan" (as in Rodriguez) = 0 hits. Kinda surprising, no?

I'm not gonna lie, I was kinda suprised that no major 90's Indians (unless you count David Justice) were on the list (a quick glace for former Tribesmen showed Justice, Matt Williams, Paul Byrd, Jason Grimsley, David Bell, Glenallen Hill, David Segui, Tim Laker and John Rocker). There's no Albert Belle. No Carlos Baerga. No Jim Thome. Or Manny or Lofton or either Alomar brother (no Brian Giles and Richie Sexson too!).

Mo Vaughn's name appears in the report as well. But if you think this gives me an excuse to bring up Albert Belle getting hosed for the 1995 MVP, you're totally off base.

Here's the thing, this list has a mix of players. Hitters, pitchers, MVPs, medicore journey men (Jim Parque? Fernando Vina?)... basically every type of ballplayer.

So... for Hall of Fame voting, what do you do? I mean, Mark McGwire didn't show up in the report and he never tested postivie of any drugs (and he never broke any of baseball's rules either). The only reason he won't get elected to the Hall is because Jose Canseco wrote a book. That's it. I still stand by my stance of "elect everyone or elect no one". You can't pick and choose.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
