Default BREAKING NEWS: Umpires Examining Sosa's Bat

On a ground ball to the second baseman, Sammy Sosa's bat shattered. The umpires are currently examining the bat, and it's speculated by Chip and Steve that something illegal may have populated the bat.

Mark Grudzielanek scored on Sosa's groundout with Alex Gonzalez advancing to third. However, the umpires ruled Sosa automatically out and ejected from the game. Troy O'Leary has replaced him in right. Grudzielanek had to go back to third and Gonzalez back to second. Moises Alou subsequently popped out to end the inning.

Yeah I just turned on the game and was going to post this. He was ejected for having an altered bat. Chip Carey is trying to act non chalant like it happens all the time, but I think this is huge! What exactly was wrong with it? Cork? What a story.

Now Stone says he remembers a corked bat incident at Sox Park. Of course, anything goes wrong and they mention the Sox. Possible suspension looming for Shammee?

The look on Sosa and Dusty's face was priceless And how about when they started inspecting the bat? Caray tried to say the ump was just trying to find get pieces of the bat that had broken from the bat off the field, and then Stone corrected him

Ugh.


You should listen to this spin control from Chip and Stonepony until the Sox game starts.

Exactly, Chip trying to act like it's not a big deal. Stone bringing up names of other guys who have done it (Nettles, Hatcher).

Stone brings up a bat incident that happened "at the old White Sox park". Uh, the Albert Belle incident happened at New Comiskey in 94 didn't it?

This is classic.

Better than gaining 6.5 games overnight.

I'm shocked it was cork that flew out of the bat and not, oh I dunno ... Flintstone vitamins or something.

He might have been referring to another time when he played for the Sox. Does anyone recall such an incident during Stone's tenure with us?
