Pre-emptive bag of shhhhhhhh on specious steroid list

No doubt it is only a matter of time until traditional media seize on the supposed list of 103 ballplayers who tested positive for steroids in 2004. It's ready-make opportunity to bash all because of the actions of one.

It's a fake
. The general consensus seems to be that someone did a huge cherry-pick of big names in baseball from 2003. It's actually kind of brilliant, as one of TBL's commenters noted:
"We know somebody has the list, and that they’re willing to leak names, especially in the face of vehement denials by guilty parties.

"So make up 103 names, write them down, and just wait for the fireworks.
