Something’s definitely up. But according to a friend of Sosa’s it’s not vitiligo … or steroids … or an act of God:

“He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson,” former Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa, told the Tribune.

“He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting.

“The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture,’” Polihronis told the paper.

Uh -huh. Well he certainly looks … rejuvenated? NBC Chicago has more pictures of Sosa through the years.
