 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Giants owner Peter Magowan expects to meet with commissioner Bud Selig in the near future to discuss the Mitchell Report.
Magowan and San Francisco general manager Brian Sabean were interviewed during the investigation by former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell about what they might have known about possible steroid use on their club by players such as home run king Barry Bonds.
``I think we're going to be given a fair opportunity to tell our side of the story,'' Magowan told reporters Thursday, when the team began promoting its 50th anniversary in San Francisco. ``I think the commissioner is a fair person and we're going to be sure that he understands all the facts of our situation.''
Magowan declined to further discuss any issues - such as whether he thought his team would be disciplined by Major League Baseball - surrounding the report, which was the culmination of a 20-month investigation into steroids and drug use in baseball.

The report said Conte told Sabean in 2002 that a player had come to him with questions because he was considering buying steroids from Anderson. Longtime equipment manager Mike Murphy discovered syringes in the locker of catcher Benito Santiago, it said.
The report said Conte went to Sabean early on to say he wanted Anderson and others like him removed from the locker room, but Sabean wasn't willing to do it.
