DuPuy: Move beyond the names
Bob DuPuy, Major League Baseball’s president and chief operating officer, appeared for nearly a half-hour today on MLB.com with host Pete McCarthy to further discuss Thursday’s release of the Mitchell Report and to answer questions posed by fans. Fans were asked to leave comments here for him as well as emailing our studios. DuPuy said he not to expect any revisionist changes to awards, statistical records or such historical matters that might be associated with players named in the report, and spoke about the importance of moving beyond the actual names. He expounded on the matter of acting on former Sen. George Mitchell’s recommendations, including a summit to discuss matters of performance-enhancing substance abuse that is not currently detectable in the drug testing provisions. Please keep your comments coming and also feel free to post links to blogs and other important URLs so that this remains a discussion center for the overall issue.
