The more information that is released the better. The quicker the better. Get everything that is confirmed on the record out there, let the media spend a few weeks blasting the sport and then we can all move on. It's certainly preferrable to have bits and pieces come out over time reopening the discussion every time it does. I could be wrong, but I don't think that MLB has the authority to suspend anyone for anything that happened prior to the new policies being implemented.

Players like McGwire, Sosa, Biggio, Bagwell, Lankford, Brian Jordan, Chipper Jones, Ryne Sandberg, and Andre Dawson are more likely candidates for being exposed by Radomski than Eckstein or Ripken.
Radomski is said by federal authorities to have been a supplier of steroids to current and former major leaguers between 1995 and 2005 after previously working as a Mets clubby and batboy.
It's likely that a lot of highly respected players dabbled with steroids at some point. I think that's probably what got McGwire in trouble when he was testifying before Congress. It's difficult to imagine a boy growing up around Southern California's Muscle Beach culture not having considered experimenting with steroids at one time or another, especially if he spent a lot of time in the gyms working out.

this story on Radomski, which yielded this temptingly tasty tidbit:
Associates say Radomski had all sorts of money-making schemes and never tired of work. One noted how he was back at work the day after he returned from accepting his plea in San Francisco. "All he did was drive," another recalled. "One time I remember he drove to Baltimore just to deliver a package. What was in it, I don't know."

You get to see him on a daily basis I assume, so what are your thoughts?

I'm ready to let Eckstein go, rather than offer him arbitration. Aaron Miles is lower priced insurance and more flexible in where he can play. The Cards have several young middle infielders now who deserve chances next spring, and they'll not get many if the Cards keep both Eckstein and Kennedy around.

Anyway, I think it's a good thing to list all of the people who failed the drug test. It helps by embarrassing the ones who got caught and exonnerating the ones who successfully used masking agents... er, I mean exonnerates those who didn't cheat.
