Is the Mitchell report biased and garbage?

As a Yankee fan, I'm shocked at players named in the Mitchell steroid report. Roger Clemens, Andy Pettite, Chuck Knoblauch, Mike Stanton, Gary Sheffield, David Justice, Kevin Brown, Mo Vaughn and Eric Gagne are some that jump out at me. It's totally loaded with Yankees or Red Sox players that a Red Sox fan would love to condemn. Mo Vaughn left the Red Sox for a big Mets contract and they'd like to lynch Gagne. Then, you hear that Mitchell is a Red Sox director. It's bad enough that the evidence is suspect at best and would never hold up in a court but it's also presented by a Red Sox director. Huh! It's ok to ruin reputations and careers on hear say? It's a Red Sox witch hunt.

Google search finds this:Unfortunately, the prominence of Yankees stars in the Report and the near-absence of Red Sox stars raises the question of whether Senator George Mitchell, the Report's primary author, was compromised by his status as a Boston Red Sox director. Was he deliberately targeting Yankees players and/or purposely overlooking offenses by Red Sox?

From Mitchell investigation was doomed from the beginning. The report itself is 409 pages of cotton candy -- wisps of truth teased into a Don King hairdo full of air, hearsay and perhaps wishful thinking. Blow softly on it and it bends and rips apart.

Allegations against Clemons are a bunch of crap:But one attorney -- a man who doesn't represent players, by the way -- said the entire case is "all based on one guy [McNamee], and there's no documentation."
