As SoD is my mother’s 12th-favorite regional sports blog I feel it is our obligation – no, ethical duty – to report on the recent New York Times allegations that Sammy Sosa tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003. So here are my thoughts – wow, this is shocking. Here I was ignorantly thinking that it was normal for a player to go from hitting 137 home runs in one four year stretch (1994-1997) to 243 in the immediately following four year stretch (1998-2001). I’ve officially lost my ability to trust. Thanks a lot Sammy. (See what I did there? Witty comments on a popular sports topic. Joke city baby).
You’re next Walt Weiss.
