Sammy Sosa Positive Steroid Test Just Continues to Bury His Legacy
He lied to me. He lied to baseball. And he lied to the general public. He went before Congress and pleaded ignorance to the whole situation, and he just suggested last week that he was innocent of any accusations of performance-enhancing drugs.
It has now been reported that Sammy Sosa tested positive for steroids in 2003. It’s not as if you or anyone else is surprised by that. The numbers that Sosa posted after most people believe he began to use steroids is ridiculous. I mean, he is the only player in the history of baseball to top the 60-home run mark on three different occasions. And let’s face it, Sosa never demonstrated that kind of potential early on in his career when his slugging percentage was below .500 from ages 20 to 24.
So with reports being as they are, Sosa has been proven a liar. His efforts 2 weeks ago to speak out against PED claims against him now get reserved in the Rafael Palmero “Oh, really?” category, as Sosa has now been exposed beyond belief.
His testimony before Congress where said he never used any illegal drugs is laughable, even if it may have been technically true.
And the efforts of a guy that Chicago Cubs fans loved for his effort, his sprinting out to right field, and his signature celebrations, which included his patented hop after his fraudulent homeruns and his kiss-point-kiss gestures, are now buried underneath the lies, the cheating and exploits of one of the men who was a lynchpin for steroids use in baseball.
