Hall of Very Good:
Sammy Sosa today is not the same guy he was a few years ago.He's a sharp dresser, the head of a needle-free injection company and, remarkably, he has remembered the English language.The former slugger took to the interwebs for ten minutes Wednesday afternoon to answer some questions from his fans. And while he didn’t respond to any questions about steroids (he did comment on Lance Armstrong)…he does believe that both he and Mark McGwire belong in the Hall of Fame."I'm not going to come here and say anything that's going to jeopardize my future. But definitely, time will determine everything,” the 1998 National League MVP said. “I’m waiting for my time. I'm the type of person that I don't like the controversy. I'm going to wait here, but definitely time will determine everything.”Of course.Other topics Sosa touched upon…his legacy with the Chicago Cubs, his future as a coach and, of course, whether or not he’d be interested in running for president of the Dominican Republic."Listen, you never know. If that moment comes in, I will be ready,” Sosa said of his political future. “I don't say that it's going to happen tomorrow or the next day, but I'm going to continue to take care of my family and taking care of the rest of the people, I feel comfortable already and I feel like I'm a president doing that."You can catch the entire chat below. Enjoy.

Sammy Sosa had an opportunity to go down in history as one of the best Chicago Cubs ever. Then in 2003 a report came out that labeled Sosa as one of many players the used PED’s, and well the rest is history.
Sosa now says he’s ready to forgive the Cubs, and during a live webcast that he set up, stated that the Cubs should have been retired his #21 jersey via ESPN Chicago.
Sammy Sosa woke up. Someone must’ve told him he didn’t get elected to the Hall of Fame. Now he’s all over the media talking about he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and how the Cubs should’ve retired his number a long time ago. To the first point, I say no. [...]

He thinks so.“I’m not going to come here and say anything that is going to jeopardize my future,” he added. “But definitely time will...
Last we checked in on former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, he allowed me to absolutely, 100% legitimately spend two days with him and his new public relations team, as they are trying to attempt to rebuild his image with the hopes of getting him back into the good graces of the incredibly evil Baseball Writers Association of America. Basically, it seems that Sosa wants to get...
I am not sure how closely you have been paying attention, but the Chicago Cubs have been making a number of free agent signings over the off season making their 40 man roster a mess, Their free agent signings did not stop last night when reports came out of the newest acquisition Scott Hairston, formerly with the New York Mets.

That’s right…the REAL Sammy Sosa, who told you about his Pinterest that is really him, and his Facebook that is really him, plus the Twitter that is really him, now REALLY has a TV show on Ustream. It’s either the real Sammy Sosa or a Terminator-like automaton designed to fool you into thinking it’s Sammy Sosa, but he says it’s HIM DAMMIT. Here are some highlights…...
The Chicago Cubs plan on restoring Wrigley Field, with or without the city's help.
The team announced a five-year, $300 million plan to rebuild the Friendly Confines at the annual Cubs Convention on Saturday, and owner Tom Ricketts said his family is willing to foot the entire bill -- but only if some long-standing restrictions are lifted.
"[We would] like to be treated...
Less than one month until Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air! WGN Radio will broadcast nine games. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the rest are covered on Gameday Radio, as was the case last year. No word yet on any televised games, though I would be surprised if any are non-weekend games.

The Rangers have not been shy about keeping their own core players in recent years. For every Josh Hamilton or Mike Napoli or C.J. Wilson that departs there’s an Elvis Andrus or Ian Kinsler or Matt Harrison who stays. They’ve been aggressive about signing players on the right side of 30 to multi-year extensions while eschewing the guys approaching their decline years. David Murphy...
