Release the list of 103
Major League Baseball may as well get it overwith and release the other 95 or so names on it’s list of players who tested positive for PHDs in 2003. Manny and Big Papi’s names were leaked by lawyers in the know, and more names will trickle out every few months or so until we run out of big names.
