Getting the dope on baseball

More news, more takes on the Mitchell report:

* Drug report won't break baseball (Marketplace)
* Report Exposes Extent of Steroid Use in Baseball (NPR)
* Timeline: Key Moments in Baseball's Doping Probe (NPR)

Does it matter to fans? Sure there are comments - cracks, really - about how it didn't actually improve performance on sites like MNspeak and TwinCities.com, but I'm not seeing any disappointment. Maybe that's the real story. Bleacher Bum Chris Dall wrote,

"I think most people know the deal by now: performance enhancement has been part of the game for several years, and may continue to be."

Would you rather see a bunch of drug-enhanced players actually hit the ball and play amazing games, or watch seven innings of purity?
