ND4SPDSHO : Quote (stegen @ June 03 2003, 10:20pm)Not a baseball fan so i have to ask, why would that matter??
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

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.

ND4SPDSHO : Anyone else hear the claim that he said that it was his 'practice bat'??
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.

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.
