Really is anybody shocked by this? Because if you are, you are a bit delusional and I have some magic beans to sell you. Any one who collected baseball cards in the early 90’s knows how Sosa looked in his 1990 rookie cards and then how he looked shortly after that. Now I would in no way, shape or form accuse someone of taking PEDs without some evidence (I think writers everywhere learned that lesson with the whole Raul Ibanez ordeal), but I think this one was pretty obvious.
Bottom line is these weren’t banned in baseball back then so tons of people used them. It’s a fact. Just like people are still using them now even though they are illegal in baseball and, oh yeah, ILLEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I think it’s funny how that part gets overlooked all the time.
