Much like Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro after the steroids hearing prompted by Jose Canseco’s tell-all book, Sammy Sosa has kept a somewhat of a low profile after his retirement.
In May of this year, Sosa attended a People Magazine event and looked like he could still hit 50 home runs without even trying. This week, Sammy attended the Latin Academy Person of the Year event and something was definitely not right.
Does anyone have a theory on how someone’s appearance can change so much in just six months? Along with the whitening skin and fake eyes, it appears that he might have also lost some weight.
As you can see from these Yahoo! photos, Sammy is now using contacts to change the color of his eyes. It’s just as pathetic today as it was when this dummy began wearing them.
Is this a case of bad plastic surgery or something much worse?

Sammy was cast for the new Twilight movie…
Pretty freaky, why is he going for the Dracula look?
I prefered Deadspin’s title
“Sammy Sosa Re-emerges As Shiny-Suited Latino Zombie”
Damn, someone stole my Dracula line.
Maybe he was a white guy to begin with.
To me Sammy looks like he’s dressing up like Pee Wee Herman for Halloween.
Maybe he is getting the same skin condition that Michael Jackson had?
My guess is drugs.
he better be careful… its harder to pretend you dont know english when youre white
eh…. creepy… like they said, the newest michael jackson!
skin condition, right……
it’s called “i want to be diana ross”-itis
makes sense, after all, since everybody knows that all those years of HGH abuse turned sammy into a big-ol’ queen……..
since Sammy’s current condition seems to be a common side effect of this particular skin treatment, I wonder why people continue to have it done…
No theory needed – its been reported by multiple sources that “He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin.”
