Another ex-Mariner caught

Isn’t it ironic that on the day that Ken Griffey Jr ties Sammy Sosa for fifth on the all-time home run list that MLB punishes another former major leaguer named Sosa for performance enhancing drugs?   This one Jorge Sosa, the righthanded pitcher who currently is in the Mariner organization was found positive for amphetamines.

Ok, off on a tangent here… I’ve said this before but unlike many Cub fans, I’ve never had a grudge against Sammy.  Despite the fact that he could have handled a lot of things a whole lot better in his latter days with the Cubs, to me his legacy includes his 545 homeruns and 1414 rbis. 

As for Jorge Sosa, what is it with all the former Seattle Mariners getting caught with PEDs?  First it was Ryan Franklin back in 2005 then Jose Guillen last year.  Now Jorge Sosa. 

It’s not rocket science.  They are testing the players.  If it’s in their system like it or not, they will notice. 

Oh, congrats to you, Junior.  I still like you even if you went to the Sox.
