PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT

for baseball non-fans, the phrase "pitchers and catchers report" is absolutely meaningless. for baseball fans, today is one of the most exciting days of the year. first baseball note on the season: why is this sammy sosa story not a BIGGER deal? this is one of the most prolific home run hitters of any generation. he had a corked bat cheating incident. he has been suspiciously linked through word-of-mouth and common sense to the steroids saga. shouldn't the fact that he's now marginalized to the point of not being able to get a major league contract be pretty high up on the list of crazy things going on in sport? my contention is that sammy sosa has never, even in his homer-bashing prime, been considered a top player. he has always been more of an afterthought and, sort of, a sideshow. that's really the only explanation i can come up with for why he's disappeared. if that's the case, i sure do agree with the lack of interest.
