Cubs Acting Like Scorned Lover in Spat with Sosa

The relationship between the Cubs and Sammy Sosa is strange and uncomfortable. Like a couple former lovers whose statuses continue to pop up on each other’s facebook feed. And the fans are the friends stuck in the middle being asked to choose sides. Cubs Shouldn’t Need an Apology The Cubs say they will welcome him back, but first he must apologize. Sosa says he wants to be...

What if Steve Bartman Didn’t Reach for the Ball?

It was only a moment in time, but lives changed when Steve Bartman reached out for that souvenir. Bartman, along with many other fans, put his hands in the air for that fateful fly ball in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS at Wrigley Field as Moises Alou of the Chicago Cubs was positioning himself for the catch. Time seemed to stand still for a moment as the ball fell off of Bartman’s...

Universally beloved and embraced…oh WAIT

Today is Presidents’ Day, so I hope you guys enjoyed the half-assed history lesson I posted earlier.  We’re getting close to the point where another sitting President will have to host the Chicago Cubs at the White House after a long-awaited Fall Classic victory, but let’s put that on the back burner for now. Earlier today, Aaron Gleeman at HardballTalk posted a blog entry...

OV Fantasy Baseball 2015 discussion

Fantasy Baseball was what turned me from a casual baseball fan into the fan I am today (with some help from Sammy Sosa), but I lost interest in it 5-6 years ago. Daily lineups, the long season, and relatively large rosters (compared to FFL) led to way more micromanaging than I had time for, and the only thing I really cared about was whether I felt like I had a good draft. This...

Not Wanting to be a Distraction, Sosa to Miss Banks’ Services

Thousands upon thousands of Chicago Cub fans are currently making their way to Daley Plaza as visitation for Ernie Banks beings. With the visitation and memorial services all taking place, you can bet that just about everyone with Cubs ties will be paying their respects; that is, except for Sammy Sosa who we learned will not be attending the services or memorial for Banks.

Sammy Sosa Is Missing Ernie Banks Funeral, Reason Is Unbelievable

Perhaps the most selfish Chicago Cubs player of all-time, Sammy Sosa, will miss the funeral of the most selfless Cub of all-time, Ernie Banks. The reason Sosa is missing Ernie Banks funeral, he didn’t want to be a distraction. Selfish And Sosa Go Hand-in-Hand Few Cubs players over the years have made things more about himself than Sosa, and this recent news is no different. From...

Pete Rose to Sammy Sosa: Come Clean

Pete Rose thinks that it’s time for Sammy Sosa to come clean. Rose was a guest on the Kap & Haugh Show this past Tuesday and one of the topics of discussion was Sammy Sosa and steroids use. Rose and Sosa share a similar history. They were Hall of Fame shoe-ins at one time, but their various transgressions have prevented them from receiving the golden ticket to be immortalized...

Sammy Sosa’s Hall of Fame Chances Take Another Dive

Sammy Sosa missed the Hall of Fame for the third year in a row. Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio all received the golden ticket to Cooperstown, but the Hall said no to Slammin’ Sammy. Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds saw a small spike in votes and they are part of the same “club” as Sosa, but Sammy actually got less votes than last year, as did his 90’s...

The Cubs Oregon Trail

It’s bloody cold today.  It might be bloody cold tomorrow.  As a result of this bloody cold, there is no school Wednesday, and there’s a non-zero chance (although the temperature hovers at zero) that there will be no school Thursday either.  As such, I do not have to teach, and I am now bored as hell. Thanks to the internet, I was able to keep myself relatively entertained...

Halls door shut again to those suspected of steroid use

NEW YORK (AP) -- Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire's chances to enter the Hall of Fame are dwindling. Baseball writers so far overwhelmingly have decided the outsized statistics of the Steroids Era stars are tarnished by their connection to performance-enhancing drugs use. Once again Tuesday, Cooperstown's doors remained shut. "I did it the only way I knew how...

What Goes Through The Mind Of A Hall Of Fame Voter?

What goes through the mind of a Hall of Fame voter? I was upfront with my selections and a good number of my colleagues did the same. That’s not to say I understand the reasoning behind their votes or comprehend the logic behind their agendas, and, let’s face it, there are some with a plan or ax to grind. I was glad my colleagues hung strong and didn’t vote for those clearly...

Should Cubs Retire Sosa’s No. 21? Let The Hall of Fame Decide

The Hall of Fame should be the standard requirement for the Chicago Cubs to retire Sammy Sosa’s No. 21, which means it likely won’t happen. The Chicago Cubs have retired five numbers in honor of six players during the storied 138-year history of the franchise — Ernie Banks (#14), Billy Williams (#26), Fergie Jenkins (#31), Ron Santo (#10), Ryne Sandburg (#23) and Greg Maddux...

And Now His Cubs Watch Has Ended

My baseball family suffered the loss today of our most senior and most loved member, Mike Lagatutta. Mike loved singing. He loved Italian food. He loved teaching. He loved his friends as he loved family. And he loved the Cubs. He grew up in the Wrigley neighborhood and he would tell us stories of getting out of school and going to Wrigley on game days to get jobs taking down folding...

White Sammy Sosa Seemed To Enjoy Art Basel Last Night (When He Ditched His Wife)

  I’m not sure how Sammy Sosa ended up in two different shirts and coats last night at Art Basel parties in Miami, but that’s exactly what went on with Slammin’. The big difference with the suits is that he wore the one with a tie while he was at a party with his wife. She’s not in the photos where Slammin’ isn’t wearing a tie. Maybe she went home to be with the kids...

Yoan Moncada has been cleared for free agency, just as soon as he gets unblocked by the U.S. Treasury Department. The Cubs had a strong presence at a workout in Guatemala on Wednesday. Since he is subject to international spending bonus pools, however, the Cubs will only have the chance to sign him if they can convince him to wait until next July. Given that the list of teams...
