The Outside Corner:
Sammy Sosa has joined Pinterest (and Twitter, as well). Looking at some of the pictures that he has pinned gives you a bizarre idea into what the former Cubs legend has been up to since retiring. Here's Sammy Sosa in a Mr Rogers-esque sweater. Here's Sammy Sosa, businessman, in a suit that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 1980s. Here's Sammy Sosa in the same suit (with a different tie), showing off a picture of him with President Obama. Here's Sammy Sosa showing off his Outlook inbox in that same hideous suit, with a portrait of him in the background. Of course, the largest image of Sosa in the painting pictures him as a member of the Rangers, where he started his career in 1989 and ended his career in 2007. Sammy Sosa: only on 12.5% Hall of Fame ballot, but in 100% of our consicousness thanks to his Pinterest. Thanks, Sammy! [follow]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
NOW THAT'S SOMETHING
It’s been a while since we checked in on our old pal Sammy Sosa. And we were thrilled to find out that he’s doing well. We were even more thrilled to find out via Deadspin that he has a Pinterest page. And it’s a Pinterest page that you should visit every single day for the rest of your life. Why? Because it has to be the best Pinterest page on Pinterest. Just has to be. [Pinterest...
Sammy Sosa has a pinterest page (and Twitter). I heard rumors about it this morning and then I saw Deadspin’s post that it has been confirmed as him.
Nothing but a wall of photos of Sosa posing in his home. There’s Sammy in a suit! There’s Sammy in a nice sweater! So carefree! So happy! And every single photo has the same caption:
“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy...
NewsTags: Baseball Hall of FameMark McGuireMLB Hall of FameSammy SosaDo you remember the summer of 1998 when the nation’s sportswriters were fawning over Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa. Baseball had been suffering from the strike of 1994-5 and needed something to bring it back. According to the baseball writers of America, McGuire and Sosa were...
"And look Sammy, the bird flies into the pigs!"By now, you’ve surely seen the glory that is former MLB slugger Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest page, which was unveiled by Deadspin yesterday and quickly pinned on every blog and Tumblr across the Interwebs. If the year ended today and I was forced to throw together my Pulitzer-winning Biggest Sports Moments of the Year feature...
Took the Jeopardy online test yesterday. I’ll keep you posted.
Sammy Sosa is on the internet!
Skip Bayless also is on the internet, and that’s not good.

With the cloud of steroids shrouding the candidacies of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and others, baseball writers may fail for the only the second time in more than four decades to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame, rendering a news...
For only the eighth time in their annual elections and the first time since 1996, baseball writers have elected no player to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The 2013 ballot marked the first year of eligibility for several greats like Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens. Voters rejected the [...]
Over a year ago I applied the Keltner List test to Sammy Sosa and figured I’d do the same thing for most of the eligible candidates just for fun. Bill James came up with the Keltner List back in 1985 and I’ll let Wiki explain.
The Keltner list is a systematic but non-numerical method for determining whether a baseball player is deserving of election to the National Baseball...
NEW YORK (AP) Steroid-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were denied entry to baseball's Hall of Fame, with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in four decades.
Bonds received just 36.2 percent of the vote, Clemens 37.6 and Sosa 12.5 in totals announced Wednesday by the Hall and the Baseball Writers' Association of America...
This was the Hall of Fame ballot that all MLB players and fans were waiting on. This was the year that Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens were up for election into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. These three have either admitted or believed to have used player enhancing drugs during the “steroid era” in Major League Baseball.
For a player to be elected into...
Cancel your vacation to Cooperstown. Not one player on the 2013 ballot is getting inducted this year.
Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa and Mike Piazza were among those denied enshrinement into the Baseball Hall of Fame when the voting results were revealed on Wednesday.
The Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) decided that no one on this year’s ballot was worthy...
Steroids and the Baseball Hall of Fame just don't mesh well. Steroids in baseball paint a picture of shady cheaters, selling out their bodies, integrity, morals, honor, and self-respect in dark corners of clubhouses around the USA, aided by equally-as-shady trainers and suppliers. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is everything that is right with sports; legends inhabiting...
The Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time since 1996 will have no inductees. This is the first year that most the players who are suspected to be steroid users are all on the ballot. Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens, and Rafael Palmeiro all received less [...]
