Sammy Sosa was one of the 104 MLB players to test positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

This most likely means that his stop with the Baltimore Orioles in 2005 was his cleanest year, which means that he didn’t care enough about Charm City to invest in a quality masking agent.

What’s the deal, Slammin’ Sammy? We know that the players were always one step ahead of the testing standards. Were the Orioles not worth it? Was it that bad to be traded here that you just said, “Screw it, no need to even bring the good stuff down here.”

Anybody else feel robbed this morning?
