Once Sammy Sosa was caught using a corked bat, there was one big question: Was he cheating when he hit any of those 505 home runs?
Gee, ya think?
I'm sure he's broken a lot of bats and this is the first time this has been found. Also, when he was in the Home Run Race the last few years, I doubt that he would have used a corked bat near the end as the bats themselves were valuable keepsakes and I'd think that you'd hate to hand over a corked bat to the Hall of Fame or a collector.
Can you imagine how badly that would have tainted those Home Run races had he been caught back then?
One thing against him is that he's currently experiencing a serious batting slump, coming back from a toe injury and a bad incident where he was struck by a pitch.
I see where they settled on an 8 game suspension. That seems about right to me.
