The problem that won't go away

So now that Alex Rodriguez has taken the "I'm sorry, so, so sorry" route and copped to using steroids from 2001-2003, one big question remains. Well, okay, several big questions remain, but this is the one that everyone cares about. What about the other 103 players who failed the 2003 steroid tests?

Mike Wise of the Washington Post argues that all 103 players should be named publicly, that we have to know everyone who "cheated the game." On the other side, former major leaguer and ARod teammate Doug Glanville writes in the NY Times that the players were guaranteed confidentiality and anonymity. "But before we get self-righteous," he writes, "we should look in the mirror and ask ourselves whether exposing A-Rod, or any player for that matter, is worth stepping all over rights, privacy, confidentiality and anonymity."

What's your take on this? Go public with all the names, or honor the confidentiality the players were promised?
