Wow. That just taints everything he's ever done, doesn't it. Because even if he never used a corked bat before, the doubt is there now. Unbelievable.

Still.

The man has hit over 500 home runs.

Sammy is a Hall of Famer.

Besides, tons of players use corked bats.

It's just a shame that Sammy got caught.

Oh, I agree that he's a HOFer. But to me it's like steroid use. If you needed illegal help, it's not the same.

Think Palmeiro uses a corked bat?

Let's put it this way.

If Raffy was using a corked bat, the SBT wouldn't think any less of him.

Why should Raffy not use a corked bat if everyone else is using one?

How'd he get caught? Cheating is cheating, no matter how many people are cheating.

It's a shame. :(

Friggin' bat busted as Sammy hit an RBI groundout.

They took away his RBI too.

Friggin' umps.

What a shame but why would he? (Rhetorical question). Kinda tarnishs things, like Marty's case.

Sammy is definitely on some sort of "supplements" they all need to be banned.

SBT, I'm surprised at your take on this. Why is this the umps' fault? Sammy was caught cheating. He knows the rules and he knows the consequences for breaking them.

And why is cheating okay?

Sammy is an all-around great guy.

The man is a hero to millions of baseball-loving kids around the world.

About as good-natured a baseball player that you'll ever find.

The SBT doesn't condone cheating.

Unfortunately, tons of players cheat.

Most never get caught.

Why single out Sammy Sosa?

Yes but SBT, don't you think as a role model he should know better?

Absolutely.

But Sammy is human.

He isn't perfect.

This is going to be very tough on his young fans.

The umps should have allowed the RBI because it came on a groundout.

Sammy could have gotten the RBI groundout with a regular bat.

So the cork itself didn't play a role in the at bat.

When I first head about this, I thought Pinella had some sort of inside tip and busted SS but that wasn't the case. This is just as bad as the steroid thing for baseball.

Several players have been caught using altered bats in the past, including Albert Belle, Wilton Guerrero, Billy Hatcher and Graig Nettles.

Thank Goodness.

The ESPN article explains everything.

The SBT knew there was a logical explanation for all this.

Sammy is NOT a cheater.
