In case you don't normally look at the sports page, Sammy Sosa was ejected from last night's game for using a corked bat, which shattered during the game. Sosa claims he picked up the bat he uses for practice and home run exhibitions. Columnist opinion round-up: Rick Telander thinks he's lying, Mike Downey defends his honor, Rick Morrissey calls him a cheater, Phil Rogers pities him, and Mike Imrem is undecided.
