While you guys are right that Sammy juices. BTW, if you remember in '98 Sammy had a mole on his face and now it is gone. The reason is when he was juicing the mole would get bigger, that is how teammates knew when he was ON.
Let me ask you this…if you are a guy in ‘AAA’ and they tell you that the only way you’ll get to the big leagues is if you develop more power, would you take the steps that he has taken? I know if I could go back in time to my minor league days I would. Its the difference between sitting in an office and making $15 million per. Most organizations, I’ve come to believe, actually like the fact that their players are willing to make these sacrifices to make themselves better. They see it as a players committment to the organization. It is pretty perverse way of conducting business.
But keep in mind that these guys don’t need that as the ballparks have been shrunk and the balls have been juiced to aid the offensive levels of the game.
But as far as cheating with a corked bat during the game, I find that to be reprehensible act that dimishes the integrity of the game and the integrity of great ballplayer.
