Did you see Lou last night in the interview before the Cubs/Sox game that didn't happen?
The interviewers talked about baseball stuff, and then got to the really meaningful part - the thing they all wanted to know: What would Lou's reaction be to the shocking news that Sammy Sosa allegedly took some kind of performance enhancing drug?
"I wasn't here" he began.
That was pretty expected.
He indicated a desire that everyone stop with the bringing up the past.
Figured that was coming, too.
But the funniest was something like, "I wouldn't know the difference between a steroid and a reefer."
He also said that he wished they'd just publish the whole list of positive testees (who unfortunately were told that their test results be secret).
I wish that too.
A) I think we're all way past the shock.
B) It's conceivable that these guys who aren't supposed to leak anything will keep leaking stuff for years to come, and it's annoying.
They wisely took it down, but the other funny thing was going to Cub.com, where they had to report the story.
The story also had a photo of Sammy, only in a Texas Ranger uniform.
A little corporate denial there...
So the bad part about this, of course, is Sammy told those congressional hearing guys that he'd never taken any PEDs.
And now, like current former cheater Astro Miguel Tejada, Sammy could get in trouble for being a liar.
A good lawyer should be able to get him off, though.
Okay rain, can we please play some baseball today?
