The 2003 list of 104 MLB players who took performance-enhancing drugs is starting to resemble the Brett Favre saga of the past two offseasons.

It's in the news every week and people are starting to lose interest.

Unfortunately, much like with Favre's retirement decisions, the media refuses to ignore the story. Seriously, were you surprised yesterday when you heard David Ortiz was on the list? There are really only a handful of players—such Derek Jeter or Ken Griffey, Jr.—who would actually shock me at this point. The steroids era has instilled a guilty until proven innocent mindset amongst fans, plain and simple.

But there is a way baseball can (sort of) finally move on: release the entire list of 104 players. Enough of this "one big star a month" deal. I want to see all of the names and I want to see them now.
