Should the government release the names of all 104 people on the steriods list from 2003? Since the names are being leaked anyways?

No, they should never be released. The original agreement was that the names would never be told. The list should have been destroyed years ago. In my opinion, the integrity of the game is hurt almost as much by this least being released as the steroids usage. What happened to sticking to agreements?

the integrity of the game? They lost that years ago. If they want to regain that they need to release that list, clean up this mess. And change rules, if your caught your GONE simple as that. Doesn't matter what it is, what the excuse, GONE. Plain and simple. And the agreement was made by people on the other side that were just as desperate and corrupt as the players. They should be in no position to have agreements like that. They did this to make the government happy, you really think they did it for their own research? To find out if they had a problem? They knew they did, and so did the media from the late 80's on and no one did anything, cause they were all making money.

Might as well get them out. Since it seems obvious that it is going to continue. Wouldn't it be better to get it all out of the way instead of hearing names little by little. Looking at it from that view, I would rather they know who is doing it right now. It's probably not going to make a difference now.

The names should not be released and whoever is leaking this information needs to be punished. This was done before testing was mandatory and before there were penalties for testing positive. This was supposed to be a quiet/in house thing and then the government got involved and siezed documents and now someone is releasing a name or 2 every year.

I believe they should release the list with the 104 names. That list was supposed to be confidential with no names and just numbers but now it seems like every few weeks we keep hearing new names. To be fair to all of those people that have had their names leaked out the list should be made public. At this point no one cares what people did back in 2003, I for one am sick and tired of hearing about steroids. MLB should just release the list, enforce the rules better and let us enjoy baseball.

Yes they should release the "lIst". That way everybody will finally stop talking about it. I was amused to see A-Roid, Sammy, Ortiz, and Man-Ram among the names leaked. To be fair to them, the rest of the names must be revealed. I want to see if Roger Clemens made the cut. I'll bet that Ivan Rodriguez was a juicer too....

No, they should keep their word and not release the names no matter how many names leak out.

I think that they should just release the list and get it over with. Im getting tired of hearing a few names here and there. It seems like baseball is taking one step forward and two steps back. They should just release all the names and move forward from there.

I think the government should have better things to do. However, I think the list should be released, but all the guys on that list are getting what they deserved. They cheated. Not just the sport but the fans. Fans who pay hard earned money to see fakes. A few years back I went to Camden Yards in Baltimore to watch the Orioles play the Giants. That day both Rafael Palmerio and Barry Bonds hit homeruns. It was apparently the first time since the 50's that two guys with over 500 homeruns had hit one in the same game. I left that day thinking I saw some history few get to see. Turns out I saw two fakes, two frauds, two liars. I'll never get that memory back and I sure as hell won't get my $25.00 back. The MLB and the players wanted to have their cake and eat it too. They knew they had a problem in the late 80's but never addressed it. They let greed get in the way and now they have to pay. They shouldn't get off easily, and the guys on this list should be known to the world, they don't deserve to have their reputations held intact no matter who said they would be.

If you are a pro sports player, I think you r name should be released if you are going to cheat! Like you said, the media is going to get all over it anyway and it is eventually going to come out. So I think it would be better to just go aheasd and tell us from the top!
