The way I see it, you are just as likely to be struck by lightening as to "mistakenly" use a corked bat that just happens to shatter the very first (and only) time you use it.
That the league didn't find any other corked bats means nothing. The only way to prove it's corked in the first place is if/when the bat shatters... and once that happens you're guilty. Therefore, you've got to be a blithering idiot to have more than one corked bat lying around (in the event you do get busted).
Hence, I agree with most folks that the league dropped the ball... even if it was only 1 game less. Sammy should have just kept his mouth shut, taken the 8-game suspension and moved on. Instead, he left the door open for further criticism from the media/fans alike.
