Mitchell Report: Perspective

Remember the cocaine scandal of the 1980s and all of the players implicated in it?

Keith Hernandez and some other guys.

There’s your long range impact of the report, fellows. People who need to run hysterical daily columns about events in the sports world today shriek that this will impact players forever and predict fire and brimstone for those implicated, but in twenty years, it won’t be a footnote, even. Just something mentioned parenthetically in some sports biographies and may be included in the index.
