Union turns down Mitchell request for medical records

In addition to the medical records of five named players (Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, Fernando Tatis, David Segui, Jerry Hairston, and Jason Grimsley), former Sen. George Mitchell also asked the Major League Players Association to submit to him an unspecified number of anonymous medical records

The MLBPA turned down Mitchell's request, sort of:

From the AP:

The union has not agreed to a request for anonymous records because players fear Mitchell's staff would use information in them -- such as age, height, weight and blood type -- to connect the records to specific players, the lawyers said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the talks. Although the union has not formally rejected the request, it has no intention of agreeing, the lawyers said.

Off topic, but who knew Tom Boswell had 11 Mickey Mantle baseball cards.

Sam's comment makes me realize that posts I make about PEDs draw little or no attention. I think there's PED fatigue.
