George Mitchell’s report on steroids was released today, and there are plenty of local names named. The document is a whopping 409 pages long, but we count no fewer than 29 onetime Mets and Yankees. The report lacks the out-of-nowhere bombshell name — did anyone really expect someone like A-Rod or David Wright to turn up? — but does confirm the rumors that Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte had juiced up. In fact, eight members of the Yanks’ last World Series championship team — Clemens, Pettitte, David Justice, Chuck Knoblauch, Mike Stanton, Glenallen Hill, Denny Neagle, and Jose Canseco — are named. Pettitte, Jason Giambi, and Scott Schoeneweis are the only active New York players on the list. —Joe DeLessio
