Juan Gonzalez denies he used steroids or PEDs

Juan Gonzalez has spoken, and he says he never used PEDs.

Lots of interesting quotes from Juan on the issue, but this was my favorite part:

Gonzalez also reserved some criticism for Bud Selig, who cleared the way for Mitchell to study the use of PEDs in baseball.

"This dilemma was caused when Canseco opened his mouth, but the commissioner is partly to blame," Gonzalez said. "Why did he throw away millions on that congressman [Mitchell]? What does Mitchell know about baseball? He never played baseball."

So there you go.  The Mitchell Report is nonsense because George Mitchell never played baseball.  Clearly, the Mitchell Report would have had more credibility if it had been issued by Kevin Mitchell.  Or maybe Mitchell Paige.
