Baseball Cheaters

It's only been a few weeks since Sammy Sosa was caught using a corked bat, and it seems the baseball world has forgiven and forgotten. Is it because cheating in baseball has such a storied past, and Sosa can now be remembered in future years as just another lovable rogue, like Gaylord Perry and Whitey Ford? An amusing piece by Bob Herzog of Newsday.com suggests that we shouldn't do anything rash about cheating incidents. They didn't keep Ford or Perry out of the Hall of Fame, and Sosa will surely follow them to Cooperstown. (link via Off Wing Opinion, a sports blog well worth bookmarking)
