My friend Jeremy says this today:
"Nice to see Slammin’ Sammy Sosa hit his 600th career home run on Wednesday. That, of course, makes him the career home runs leader among all active players who are not being investigated for steroid use...."
Here's a link to the piece where he says it.
Respectfully, I beg to differ:
I found the image above on this "Cubs Suck" blog.
And this one:
I'm sure he was "juicing". His anemic stats the year he got off the juice and played for the Orioles are pretty good evidence, if the pics don't do it for you.
As to whether he is currently "...not being investigated for steroid use...", the investigating committee headed by former Senator George Mitchell is bein' kinda quiet about who, exactly, it is investigating (except for the messy negotiations with Jason Giambi and his lawyer(s)).
No denigration of Jeremy or his blog is intended here. Reasonable people can differ. The mark of adulthood, as I have often observed here before, is the ability to disagree without being disagreeable. I hope I've succeeded.
