Only 1 Yankee on 2000 team named by Mitchell Report

Following are 10 names the media has said "are linked to the 2000 Championship Yankee team," (and of course Joe Torre) etc. The Report has only 1, Roger Clemens, as a Yankee team member actually using or paying for a substance during that year. I've included documentation where available:
  • 1. Yes. Report cites Clemens using in middle of year 2000, injected by McNamee .
  • 2. No. Grimsley checks to Radomski are 2001-2005.
  • 3. No. Glenallen Hill first check to Radomski March 14, 2001:
"For the investigation, Radomski produced one check from Hill for $3,200, dated March 14, 2001," Regarding Glenallen Hill's 2000 World Series performance: Over all 5 games:
  • 3   3  0  0  0  0  0   0  0  0  .000  .000  .000  0

  • Nevertheless, you see the exact opposite written, such as this from the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
"SANTA CRUZ -- Hometown hero Glenallen Hill -- a key player on the New York Yankees' 2000 World Series championship team -- was named in the Mitchell report released Thursday."
  • A "key player" on the World Series team? Over the 5 games he had 3 at bats, got no hits, no walks, nothing.
  • 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1

  • 10. No. Allen Watson. Name was not on Mitchell report. His name was mentioned in passing by Grimsley but not for steroids or HGH. Something unspecified, no dates, has been denied by Watson's lawyer who has threatened legal action for anyone making any such statements about Watson. Watson did not appear in the 2000 World Series, had a 10.23 ERA in his 22 IP in the 2000 regular season.
