Deadspin has an around-the-blogosphere round up of Mitchell report reporting. My favorite, comes from Bugs and Cranks.
• Fun With The Mitchell Report. A search for Barry Bonds in the pages of the Mitchell report has 91 results. Sammy Sosa has 1. BALCO appears 56 times. Bud Selig and Cocksucker has zero results. Circumstantial does not appear. Carolina Panthers results in zero occurrences. David Eckstein is not named. John Kruk and Donuts has zero results. The word Sex appears 3 times.

What’s so damn great about this little blurb is that it’s much more efficient than the report itself, much more believable, and the Bud Selig note being placed in between the Ass comments, really really brings warmth to the nooks and crannies of my heart.
Also, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to take a report that was written and produced by someone on any team’s board of directors seriously at all. It’s not just a Red Sox thing, not even close.
