So much for waiting for the Hall of Fame to call you. A breaking report shows the Sosa was one of the 104 players that tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

The report cites lawyers knowledgeable of the drug testing results from that year. Sosa would not address allegations of steroid use, and now we know why.

He's a cheater, and now this validates it. His home run race against Mark McGwire cannot be taken seriously. His MVP award is now in serious question. He forgot how to speak English because he knew he was doing the game wrong.

Sosa joins the list of players who have disgraced the game. Alex Rodriguez and "Slammin" Sammy are just two of the 104 players on the steroids list.

I don't like the fact that these players names are coming out one by one and through various means. Major League Baseball should just release all of the names, so some players don't get exposed and treated more unfairly. But if this is the only way we're going to find out the names, it's better than nothing.
