Is Derrick Goold broke?
- Following is what I found from reading the Mitchell Report and its attachments about the 2000 Yankees which I originally posted 12/22/07:
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:
- From article in SantaCruzSentinel.com, Jim Seimas, 12/14/07, "Ex-MLB Outfielder Named in Mitchell Report." ***This article also states Hill met with MLB as required as he's an MLB employee.
- The AP Thumbnail on Yahoo Sports doesn't state the 2001 date of the check. Leaving out this key detail allows the reader to assume Hill used in 2000 while a Yankee.
- Both AP and the Santa Cruz paper note Hill's meeting with MLB, that he acknowledged purchasing a substance from Radomski but never used it, and had been having marital stress at that time.

- Nevertheless, you see the exact opposite written, such as this from the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
- A "key player" on the World Series team? Over the 5 games he had 3 at bats, got no hits, no walks, nothing.
- 4. No. David Justice. First, the AP report says Radomski sent Justice something "AFTER the 2000 World Series". Assuming that's so, the AP report states Justice paid by check and that Radomski cashed the check. But AP leaves out a key detail again: Radomski had no canceled check, did not provide any record of such to the Mitchell Report. The lack of a canceled check has been noted elsewhere including ESPN.com, 12/14/07. Also noted in the NY Times, Justice did meet with MLB once before the report.
- 5. No. Chuck Knoblauch. "In the report: McNamee said that he acquired human growth hormone from Radomski for Knoblauch in 2001."
- 6. No. Denny Neagle. The Mitchell/Radomski report page 235 said "Neagle always paid by check." The Mitchell Report included photocopies of all checks. NONE WERE DATED BEFORE 2001. They are located on pp. 389 and
- 390 in the Appendix of the Mitchell Report. THE MITCHELL REPORT ITSELF DOESN'T CLARIFY THIS FACT IN THE TEXT. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE APPENDIX AND SEE THE CHECKS. The AP report notes verbal testimony of sales being made between 2000 and 2004 thereby allowing the reader to assume he used while on the Yankees, which was not shown by the evidence in the Report. (In the 2000 World Series, Mariano Rivera pitched more innings than Denny Neagle) anyway.
- 7. No. Andy Pettitte. Only stated and acknowledged during early 2002 for HGH when Pettitte was on the DL.
- 8. No. Mike Stanton. The report states the first sale to Stanton was in 2003 when he was on the Mets.
- 9. No dates relevant. Jose Canseco. Had 1 AB in 2000 World Series and struck out.
- 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.
