Tom Ricketts: Sammy Sosa must be honest about PED use
Sammy Sosa is still unwelcome at Wrigley Field — unless he tells the truth about his past involvement with PEDs.
Cubs owner Tom Ricketts said Sosa needs to be honest about his past if he is to be officially welcomed back by the team in any capacity.
“Players from that era owe us a little bit of honesty,” Ricketts said Saturday at the team’s fan convention, via Jesse Rogers of ESPN. “The only way to turn that page is to put everything on the table.
“I think we have to be sympathetic to that era … but the players owe us some honesty, too.”
Sosa has spent several years not knowing why he’s been exiled from the Cubs. At least he now has his answer — though he may point out that the Cubs had no problem employing Manny Ramirez as a coach.
