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...

The 2015 Furious Yankee Fan Hall of Fame Ballot Sabotage Initiative

You have 10 votes. Your job is to support Yankees... and no one else. Mwa-hahahaha! So... the plan:1. Until Roger Maris is in the Hall... no Barry Bonds, no Mark McGwire, no Sammy Sosa... no sluggers whatsoever. (From now on, HR stands for Human Resources.) This is your ironclad rule of life, the first thing you tell strangers on the street. Without Roger, there is no Cooperstown...

The Physics of Baseball – Robert Adair, Ph.D.

We head back to the lab for this edition of the Burning River Book Club as we take a look into The Physics of Baseball by Robert K. Adair, Ph.D. While this is an older book, originally penned in 1990, it has since been updated multiple times as can be seen by references to some players if nothing else. In addition, there have been no huge breakthroughs in the scale of physics that...

Sammy Sosa: Still alive (probably), still as freaky-looking as all get-out (photo)

Ever since Sammy Sosa disappeared from Major League Baseball, he has surfaced from time to time at some various function, appearance, on his own Pinterest page or what-have-you. The prevailing reaction to each time Sosa reemerges in public elicits is the continued, utter shock at his bizarre appearance (the above haunting image is from 2010,...Read More The post Sammy Sosa: Still...

The Extra 2%, 18.3° N Edition

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...

It must be that time of year…famed creature of the night Nosferatu Sammy Sosa has emerged from his crypt and made a public appearance. The 1998 National League MVP was in Panama recently, hanging out with legendary boxer Roberto Duran and, once again, looked a few shades lighter than he did during his playing days. As you might recall, Sosa has experimented with his skin several...

The Day Baseball Brought the Country Back Together

As we remember the 13th Anniversary of 9/11, we are reminded both what is truly important and often what we take for granted, but also how sports can help heal a nation. Sports has always had a way of uniting people to show pride in your school, city, or nation. They can offer a distraction from everday stresses which can be magnified during a time when our nation is on high alert...

Somehow, Someway, That All Worked Out For The Cardinals

That could have been a whole lot better. That could have been a whole lot worse. Both things are true as we dig through the rubble of a 2-2 split against a bottom dwelling foe… that somehow vaulted the Cardinals into a first place tie in the NL Central. First the bad news. + The Justin Masterson trade is officially a bust. His ERA with the Cardinals is 7.90 and he’s surrendered...
