Thoughts on Sammy Sosa

The New York Times is reporting that former major leaguer Sammy Sosa tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

However, the sources for this story do not know for which PED Sosa had a positive test. It does make me just a wee bit suspicious.

And a little angry. This was supposed to be confidential. There are 104 players who tested positive for these substances. Yet now some people have taken it upon themselves to break the law and reveal their names of the players or at least the elite ones. This was the case back in February when it was reported that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids.

But positive test or not, Sosa's chances for Cooperstown were slim in the first place. Now, fairly or not, those chances have been reduced to none.
