So you don't think its exciting that he could be 1 of 6 players and one of 3 non dirty cheaters to hit 60?

Pretty exciting to me ;-D


How do you know Howard isn't cheating?


He doesn't quck like a duck, walk like a duck, or look like a duck.

Anyways I forgot those other guys didn't cheat cause it wasn't against the rules. So they were criminals.

So it will be the first non criminal to hit 60 since Maris.

Thats pretty exciting ;-D


It is exciting, but it was exciting in 1998 also. Plus Jason Grimsley, Rafael Betancourt, Alex Sanchez, Ryan Franklin et al didn't quack, walk, or look like ducks either.

Do I think Howard cheats? No. But would I bet against it? No way.


I thought it was exciting in 1998 too...

I don't understand why no one is getting excited about it now.

It was a major record for 37 years then 3 guys broke it in no time then no one has come close since.

So its pretty exciting still


"No one has come close since"? It's only been five years! :-?

I'm telling you, it's true. His weight jumped from 4 to 6 pounds this year. A 50% increase is not natural.

Thats funny.

Well if Ruth and Maris and Howard are on roids they hide it well.

Maris was well built but Ruth and Howard seem to be fattys.

The other big heads with the record looked like body builders.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

for the umpteenth millionth time ..

What exactly did Sammy Sosa do again?

I have yet to see one shread of evidence other than idiots saying .. "He looks like he was on something, and he corked a bat"

Well Ruth corked bats, lots of players have been busted with corked bats, and I am pretty sure that thier records were never wiped clean.

So what exactly did Sammy Sosa do again?
and where is your evidence.

No steriods found in his locker ..

No books written about him ..

Nothing!

Just speculation by reporters and therefore the sheep ..

So is that where the haters have drawn their line .. speculation?

thats awfully vague isn't it?
It sure seems unfair.
But then again there is nothing fair about a witch hunt now is there.

you better hope that reporters don't start speculating about Howard.

Sammy Sosa sucked for his final two seasons (one with Baltimore) and behaved poorly enough to turn Cubs fans against him. And he used a corked bat at least once. Other than that, his bad looks (apparently people haven't noticed that he had a big head even when he played for the Whitesox) and his suddenly poor grip of the English language on Capitol Hill I can't think of anything against Sosa other than rumors and innuendo. It's not like the situation with Big Mac where we KNOW he took certain legal but now banned substances or with Bonds where we have his grand jury testimony that he unknowingly used the cream and the clear...Sosa is simply the target of speculation.

So in other words, you're saying that he took steroids... right? ;-7
