6th Circuit dust-up

The Plain Dealer reports on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dust-up. The chief judge, Boyce Martin, tried to defend himself by using this line out of Aristotle’s Rhetoric: "’I’m royally shafted, to put it mildly. It’s like poor Sammy Sosa. I never had a corked bat before and I don’t think I had one here.’" I think this is amusing.

Wait a minute, Sammy Sosa DID have a corked bat and he admitted it. In light of this, what does the judge mean by invoking Sosa?
