Former Pirates Roiders Named

Here’s a short list of former Pirates named in George Mitchell’s steroids list.

Kevin Young, Denny Neagle, Ron Villone, Jose Guillen, Jason Christiansen, Tim Laker, Josias Manzanillo and Barry Bonds.


UPDATE: Earlier in the day, Will at Deadspin offered a possible list of players mentioned (before the actual list came out). It turned out to be false, but included a few other former Pirates…like Wil Cordero and Julian Tavarez. I knew it had to be false when Wil Cordero’s name was popping up in association with steroids.

However, Deadspin commenter Get Him A Body Bag, Yeah offered up a solid reasoning as to why Tavarez couldn’t possibly be mentioned as well:

Julian Tavarez? I knew steroids shrunk your balls, but I didn’t know they made you look like someone put out a fire on your face with a screwdriver.

I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

End of UPDATE.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Several other former Pirates were mentioned, either in the bulk of the report or in the BALCO section. Other Pirates include:

Matt Herges, Benito Santiago, Armando Rios and Gary Matthews Jr.

Sorry for leaving you out, buds.

End of UPDATE #2.
