Alleged doping aligns with boosts in stats, paychecks

Ben Poston, Derrick Nunnally and Bill Glauber of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel built a database of every player named in the Mitchell Report. The reporters analyzed statistical performance before and after the players allegedly began taking drugs and found that more than half the 90 players named in the report showed an improvement in performance within two years. The reporters also looked at the financial rewards for a smaller group of star players by comparing salaries in the year the doping began to the next contract signed.
