Alex Sanchez, Outfielder, Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Quite a monumental upset. Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi had to be considered the heavy favorites in this race. But Sanchez comes out of nowhere (i.e. Tampa) and steals the honor away. Congrats on getting yourself in the history books. Think there will be a special place in the Hall of Fame commemorating the occasion?
Oh, and for his efforts, Sanchez is to be suspended 10 days, pending appeal, and be given a slap on the wrist.
My "favorites" to be outed next:
Kyle Farnsworth (just ask Paul Wilson what another man's roid rage feels like)
Jim Thome (just because you're fat doesn't mean No Roids Inside)
Rich Aurilia (coming off disappointing season)
Michael Tucker (would jump off the Grand Canyon if his Slugging Teammate du jour did it first. Bonds did it, now Tucker will give it a shot.)
Hideki Matsui (the bacne has spread to his face)
Matsui went yard as his entry was being written
Ryan Franklin (Oh, sweet irony!)
