Clean it up

Joe Torre, speaking about Albert Pujols, says, "He hits the ball a long way and they're going to say, 'Ah-ha, I wonder.' And it is unfair, there's no question it's unfair." No question it's unfair? I'm afraid, Joe, that is a big question. We baseball fans have been burned too many times to be accused of being unfair if we think that a particular player is juiced. I'm sure Torre also thought it unfair when a certain left fielder was the subject of such accusations.
