As a Cubs blogger, I think I'm going to have to get down on my knees and thank the good Lord that Sammy Sosa has joined us in the social media world. We've seen his Pinterest page and his Twitter account. He also has a Facebook page littered with the same awesome yellow-sweatered photos as his Pinterest (which @harrypav pointed out were directly pinned from his Flickr account). Sammy knows social media, apparently. Today, Sammy tweeted out a "special video," claiming he had been promising it. I didn't see the promise, but I may have missed it in between all of the "Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest" declarations. Sammy has been setting the bar quite high in the Sammy Sosa being Sammy Sosa contest lately, but this video does not miss in it's effort to remind us all that Sammy Sosa once hit a ****-ton of homeruns and millions of people ******* LOVED him.  It isn't the best produced video ever. But it is definitel...

Sammy Sosa Is CEO Of Company That Distributes Needle-Free Injection System

I had to jump on this story as soon as I saw it.  I can only imagine the looks on people’s faces when they read this.  Via a tweet from Crossing Broad, and doing some research of my own on the company’s website, former Chicago Cubs slugger, and ambassador of baseball’s steroid error, Sammy Sosa is the CEO and investor of a company that distributes needle-free injection systems...

Daily Facepalm – 1.13.12

Good teammate To the surprise of no rational Cubs fan here or elsewhere, Alfonso Soriano is a good teammate. During his time in Chicago, Theo Epstein has come to realize what a tremendous teammate Soriano is and how willing he is to help younger players. Epstein considers Soriano an excellent clubhouse presence, and after a 32-homer, 108-RBI season, the Cubs president contends that...

Cubs’ Alfonso Soriano to Philadelphia Rumor

The Chicago Cubs should be getting some offers for their 37-year-old outfielder Alfonso Soriano. The Philadelphia Phillies would be a perfect destination for Soriano considering that they are looking for some outfield help bad. KenRosenthal of Fox Sports reports that the Phillies GM Ruben Amaro is seeking some outfield help to make his team into more of a contender...

Sammy Sosa is Fronting a Needleless Injection Company?

It's not news to anyone, but, last week, Sammy Sosa did not make it into the Hall of Fame.  And, for some reason, the 1998 National League MVP felt it his place to comment."Even if we weren’t inducted on our first time," Sosa said via a statement, "we are still winners and there is always a next time."Now, unless Sosa has a mouse in his pocket...I'm...

Sammy Sosa’s English Is Suddenly Superb On Twitter, Facebook

Sammy Sosa, a guy who hit 609 home runs, retired and then disappeared to the obscurity of Latin America (Miami), has stepped back into society via a suddenly serious social media presence. For a guy who made $124,000,000 during his baseball career, you’d think that Slammin’ would just sail off into the sunset and whiten his face with cream of pearls. Not Sammy. He started using...

Deciphering the “Cubs Way”: Replacing the house of cards with a house of bricks

Here’s the deal.  We know that prospects are important in baseball.  We know that one of the primary methods of acquiring these prospects is through the amateur draft, and that the guys who are picked early are usually the most likely to succeed in the major leagues, which intuitively makes sense. We know that a team is more likely to succeed in the regular season and make the...

Hairston deciding soon

Photo By Michael BaronFor the second time in less then a month were hearing that a Scott Hairston decision is imminent. Supposedly Hairston was choosing between the Mets and Yanks with a decision any day but when the Yanks lost interest he decided to wait the market out. Now reports are that Hairston is once again close, is this a ploy to see if he can get that two year 8M contract...

The Cubs Should Be Recruiting This Cricket Fan

During a recent Cricket match, Brad Haddin blasted a six into the crowd and a spectator came down with one of the best grabs we have seen, especially considering he was carrying an iced coffee and two hamburgers. The spectator is a 16-year old named Peter Spurling who according to the Herald Sun is already being recruited heavily while he plays for his AIS AFL Academy. The catch...

Deciphering the “Cubs Way”: Using the best materials and craftsmanship to build the house

Yesterday, we outlined the mess the new front office had to clean up.  Today, unencumbered by playoff football and random awards shows, let’s try to figure out how they may work towards that goal in regards to player development.
