There once was a bat full of cork,
That broke due to excessive torque.
500 homers he hit,
So he'll galdly admit,
"That's just my tuning fork"
Sammy Sosa was ejected from the first inning of the Cubs-D'Rays game (love that interleague play), after his bat shattered and it was found to contain cork. Sosa is expected to admit to using a corked bat after the game but...
Sosa will say the illegal bat was used for batting practice, but somehow got mixed in with his game bats. He will add that he has never used a corked bat in a major league game before tonight.
Yeah, right. Even if it's true, who's going to believe him?
Last year it was the Rick Reilly unfairly pinning the steroid tag on Sosa, but tonight he did it to himself.
