    Ernie Banks asks Sosa to come clean

    ESPN - Cubs Hall of Famer Ernie Banks is asking Sammy Sosa to address allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

    "Come clean with it," Banks advised Sosa in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. "Explain it to them ... Just say: 'This is what happened.' It's hard to do, to admit this. Just admit it and live with it and understand it. I am sure a lot of people will forgive him."

    The New York Times reported last June that Sosa is one of the 104 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in baseball's 2003 survey testing.

    We'll see how much respect Sosa has for the Cubs and the MLB after this plays out. If someone as respected as Mr. Cub asks you to do something, you better do it...

    Thats the thing. Dont deny it, be a man and admit it. People may gripe and hate you at first, but eventually most intelligent people will learn to respect you for owning up to a mistake and taking responsibility.

    I'd be content if Sammy just went away and stayed whereever he decides to go - quietly. Admission or not.

    We know he did it - I don't need an admission and it really would mean zip to me if he did.

    And when you admit it, tell the whole story. Don't try to polish a turd like McGwire did.

    Exactly. If the media wants info, they will get it eventually. Might as well throw it all out there. You dont have to rat anyone else. Just say what you did and leave it at that.
