Sammy Sosa Was On Roids, Who Knew?

Was anyone really surprised at the news that that Sammy Sosa popped positive for a performance enhancing drug in 2003? We really didn’t need Captain Obvious to tell us that Sosa was a Roid Head but it’s nice to know that there’s some hard evidence somewhere in the universe to back up this knowledge.

This just further validates the position that the whole era of McGwire, Bonds, Sosa eras should all be labeled with an asterisk as well as the records broken during that time.
