I'm no expert, but my common sense tells me that it lightens the bat, and makes the ball bounce off the bat harder

I hope he gets fined for that bigtime, that's just not right

Bingo. Head speed and rebound characteristics are improved

Re: like he needs the help

Baseball players are a bunch of overpaid, overweight, whining assholes. I quit watching many years ago the first time they went on strike. I hope Sosa wears a scarlet letter for life.

MAIATAOYBF = My apologies in advance to all of you baseball fans, sorta.

Re: like he needs the help

Whatever. People get way to much money to play a kid's game and not work for half the year. Hell, even when they are at work they get to sit on their cans and do nothing.

They examined 77 of his bats after this incident. Not a single f*cking one had cork. So it appears he is telling the truth, that he used it in practice only for the fans. A lighter bat will help the hitter and help Sammy slam practice home runs in batting practice for the fans. As always, the media has made a big deal out of $hit.

Re: like he needs the help

He's been in a power slump since May 1, and most of his peers say it's preposterous that he would get the bats confused. His reputation is shot, which is a shame. Using a corked bat is cheating, and he got busted. Now every time he hits a home run, people will wonder. If it was a mistake, it's a pretty stupid one.

Re: like he needs the help

Would that bat be considered bling bling ?

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!
