(Newser) – Amid all the questions about Alex Rodriguez's alleged steroid use, two big ones have been overlooked: Who are the other 103 players who tested positive in 2003, and why have no other names surfaced? Yankees legend Reggie Jackson brought this up to the New York Post, and perhaps surprisingly, Boston's Curt Schilling feels the same way.

Schilling wrote on his blog that unless the suspected juicers are named, "the other 600-700 players are going to be guilty by association, forever." Although it's hard to imagine another player who could stir up this much drama by being named, the list of players who failed drug tests is rumored to have some stars on it, adds the Post.
