After reading this article on ESPN.com(http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3151479), there's almost no point in watching George Mitchell's press conference on Thursday in which he will tell us the results of his 20-month investigation on steroid use in baseball.

Here's why:

1)  We know what it's all about(drug use), and most of us won't know the names of at least half of the players.  At least we shouldn't know their names, because the players that need the help of performance enhancing drugs are the players who are shadowed by superstars.  Not that it gives them an excuse to use drugs, but put yourself in the position where you are among the greatest players in your sport, but nobody seems to know your name.

2)  We know what time it is happening, and the article says that the results will also be posted on MLB.com.  Plus, we'll all see it about 300 times on Sportscenter in the next 2 weeks.  Come on, you can't deny it.  How many times do you turn on ESPN every day?  I probably average 15 times a day.

3)  The article also says Bud Selig won't likely be there.  This means that there will be no entertaining shots of baseball's old-fashioned commissioner shaking his head in disgust as he hears the names of all the players in his league whose stats are tainted.
