(Newser) – The sports blogosphere is abuzz over some new photographs of Sammy Sosa in which the former performance-enhanced Chicago Cubs star looks much, much lighter-skinned than we’re used to. Seems nobody’s been able to reach Sosa yet, and nothing in the captions of photos from Tuesday’s event in Las Vegas yields clues, either. Some speculate it could be vitiligo, a skin disease that allegedly afflicted Michael Jackson; others see a bad makeup job.
