Great Moments in Saying More Than You Intended

Dusty Baker, from the sidebar story on today's Griffey piece in the USA Today:
The Cincinnati Reds' Dusty Baker will become part of history when Ken Griffey Jr. hits his 600th home run as the first to manage three 600-home run hitters: Barry Bonds (762) with the San Francisco Giants, Sammy Sosa (609) with the Chicago Cubs and Griffey (597)."I'm a blessed man," Baker says. "Those guys are all great hitters but different. . ."

. . . Most prepared? Sosa. "He prepared longer and harder than people realized," Baker says. "Barry (Bonds) would prepare, but he just wouldn't let you see him prepare."
Gee, I wonder why?

It's probably true about Sosa. I saw a show once where they corked a bat, and it looked like it would take a while.
