Well here we go again.  Sosa is once again all over the news for his positive drug test in 2003.  To quote Chris Rock, “I thought it was Groundhogs Day when I heard that.”  Are we really going to talk about this again?  I guess we are.

In 2003 over 1000 MLB players took what was called an anonymous drug test, thinking that their results would be confidential.  Sosa was one of those players and his results have been released obviously.  Now the question is should everyone that took the “anonymous” test, and tested positive, be named also?  According to White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen, thats not too bad of an idea.  “It’s really sad. Really sad.  We all should be embarrassed. No matter how you put it, you’re not going to win. Every other week or every two weeks or whatever we have to talk about this or somebody out or another player. I think whoever’s name is out there just bring it up and deal with it for one day and we don’t have to sit here every day(quote from espn.go.com).”  I cant help but agree with him.  It is time to smoke out all of the guilty.  Wouldn’t that be the right thing to do?  Doesn’t it make sense?  Ozzie has a great point.  If they bring the names out, they will deal with them, we will hear about it on ESPN for about a week, and then it will be done.  Maybe done is the wrong word, done for now more like it(My faith in MLB honesty is almost completely gone).  The alternative, we dont expose these guys, they keep putting up their phony numbers, and someday get inducted into the Hall of Fame.  What do you do then?  Do you call them out now?  Or let these cheaters live forever in baseball history with numbers that they paid for rather than earned?  It has to stop sometime, and that time is now.  Lets picture this, just for a moment.  You turn on the TV and for once, you dont see the steroid topic on the little ticker thing on the side.  That is the world I want to live in.  I hate the fact that whenever I hear about a baseball player on a tear and putting up great numbers, I cant help but think, I bet that guy is on the juice.  But thats the world that we live in.  The ball is in your court MLB, its time to expose the guilty.
