In a sport almost devastated by two strikes, by the scandal of an All-Star game that was not allowed to finish, by general fan apathy, etc., etc., etc., it would be disastrous to declare that one of its top 5 stars is a cheater.... Sammy Sosa is very important to MLB, is a part of MLB, and having MLB investigate itself is a joke. What's more, it doesn't matter a single iota that Sosa's other 78 bats tested negatively for cork (if, indeed, that report can be trusted), because those weren't the bats he used in the game. If he had 500 uncorked bats, it wouldn't matter. If anything, the more uncorked bats he has the lower the odds become of him pulling the corked one by accident, and the more likely it was an act of deliberation. Baseball sucks. I actually derive some amusement from scandals like this one.
