I just read a report by a scientist that said that the "corked bat" really doesn't give you that much of an advantage.

I will see him as St. Sammy Sosa, Savior of the Cubs.

if you are gonna cheat you arent gonna make a lot of corked bats, it would just be easier to catch you. and like headache said, baseball wants this to go away as quick as possible, so they will do everything they can to help thta along.

physics people dont say corked bats help much, but baseball players that have tried them say they help a lot, so i will trust the baseball players that actually have hit with them.

i dont think sammy has used a corked bat too much, but i guarentee you he has used them in the past few home run derbies, and thats pretty sad in itslef.

Ugh, I'm so sick of this Corked Bat thing, being a Chicago person myself (Yes, I'm a fan of the Cubs, but just a little). I think that Sosa just did(n't) something wrong, but it's one of those wrongs that was accidental. But I do agree with zonelistener, Sosa should be a saint, it would be a blessing to All Chicago Cubs fans (mainly the ones in Chicago, but all over the world would be fine too).
