NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell has asked several former and current major leaguers for medical and telephone records, requests the players' union says oversteps the scope of baseball's steroids investigation.
Michael Weiner, the union's No. 3 official, sent an e-mail to agents Friday telling them to inform the union if any clients are contacted by Mitchell.
"The scope of the investigative efforts to date are plainly inconsistent with the provisions of the basic agreement, related agreements and other statutory rights of all players," Weiner wrote.
- This should be interesting, as I haven't heard Mitchell has subpoena power.
