Baseball player Sammy Sosa arrives for t
By Bruce Levine– COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (CBS) –Frank Thomas was inducted in the Hall of Fame on Sunday for his contributions on the baseball field. For all of his great numbers and memorable home runs, his finest hour may have been his stand against performance enhancing drugs before any ball player of his time. Thomas lost all kinds of status and baseball awards when over-developed contemporaries took drugs and passed up his real batting numbers like he was standing on the ...

The Nationals have the best and most complete roster in baseball. Yet, as opposed to running away with the division at the halfway mark like most thought they would, they’re tied with the Braves for the division lead.
