This season, Sosa is batting .246 with 33 HR and 77 RBI. Even during his pre-home run chase years Sosa had better numbers and played a lot better defense. His contract expires after next season and I don't expect him to be resigned unless things are turned around for him next year. However, that scenario may not get a chance to be played out because there is talk about him being traded this off season. So what do you think The Cubs should and will do with Sammy?

I'm extremely skeptical of the drug testing policies of the professional sports leagues in the US. It wasn't until 2002 that the MLB players' union relented on its rabidly anti-drug testing stance in any kind of bargaining agreements it's had with management that they're barely implementing now. It's been within the interests of both to keep the status quo regarding drug testing. It's good for the players' stats, which keeps the fans interested, which is good for marketing, which is good for the owners--more money--which is good for the players . . .

That freak of nature, McGuire, exhibited many of the side-affects of steroid abuse: turgidity, acne, ridiculously large physique, etc. But then again, drug testing in MLB was a joke, and will probably continue to be so.

The news articles only mention the random testing for steroids. What with the plethora of performance enhancing drugs available, steroids are patently obsolete. And that's not mentioning the various substances used to mask the use of steroids.

I follow professional bicycle racing, so I'm pretty jaded and cynical about the whole of pro-sports as regards doping.

The european bike racers have never had a union as strong and powerful as US professional baseball players. They don't have a union, period.

I'm a fan of the Cubs, although I don't follow the season religiously. I lived the early part of my youth in Chicago, and fondly remember summer afternoons at home with my mom; she'd be doing housework with the tv tuned to a Cubs game.

When I was younger this man was my God. I swear to God, at one point his name was shaved in the back of my head. This sucks.

@panzade,
Quote:
Baseball slugger Sammy Sosa is sporting a much lighter skin tone these days.

But he insists he is not trying to look like the late Michael Jackson, nor is he suffering from a skin disease such as vitiligo (the skin pigmentation condition from which Michael Jackson allegedly suffered), ESPNDeportes.com reported.

Instead, Sosa said that his lighter skin is from using a facial cosmetic cream.

"It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some," he said during the "Primer Impacto" program at the Univision Spanish network.

"It's a cream that I have, that I use to soften (my skin), but has bleached me some. I'm not a racist, I live my life happily," he said.
