Redefining Sammy Sosa’s Baseball Legacy

The Chicago Cubs are now several generations separated from the last time Sammy Sosa took right field for them on October 2, 2004. A lot has happened since then: Derrek Lee had one of the best offensive seasons in Cubs history, Lou Piniella led his squad to back-to-back division titles in 2007 and 2008, that […]

Sammy Sosa: The Hall of Fame Debate

Sammy Sosa  will not be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016. In fact, for myriad reasons, he will likely never receive serious consideration. In three years on the Ballot, Sosa has received 12.5 percent, 7.2 percent, and 6.6 percent, respectively. As of December 15th this year, according to Ryan Thibs’s invaluable ballot […]

Putting a Value on the Future of Yoenis Cespedes

When Yoenis Cespedes suits up in April, he will very likely be playing for his fifth team in just over a 20-month period. His last 211 games have been split between four clubs. Some might try to use this as a reason to undervalue Cespedes in free agency and argue that three, perhaps four, teams have given up on him of late. Those arguments tend to miss the point, as the Oakland Athletics...

Sammy Sosa Still Partying Down in Dubai

Sammy Sosa and his group of low-rent Kardashian wannabes are still in Dubai and still partying like rockstars. The former slugger has been in Dubai celebrating his 47th birthday. First, he hit the clubs in his recent vampire-like get up. Then, he and his crew took their act to the desert. Surprisingly, he looked less like the walking dead and more like a sorority girl spending her...

Sammy Sosa Parties it Up in Dubai

Vampire Sammy Sosa is back gang! The former big leaguer spent his 47th birthday in style…partying it up in, of all places, Dubai. Friday, Sosa posted nearly a dozen pictures of himself on Facebook (looking every bit as ghoulish as he has previously) but this time, he’s surrounded himself with some sort of low-rent Kardashian wannabes. As you might recall, Sosa has experimented...

Sammy Sosa wants to throw out a first pitch if Cubs make World Series

Sammy Sosa and the Chicago Cubs did not part ways on the best of terms, but enough time has passed that Sosa has voiced his interest in throwing out a ceremonial first pitch if the team reaches the World Series. Sosa, of course, was not just a Cubs icon at his peak, he was a...Read More

Sosa would love to throw out first pitch at Cubs World Series

Sammy Sosa wholeheartedly endorsed an idea originally proposed by Chicago Cubs hitting consultant Manny Ramirez that he should throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Wrigley Field should his former team reach the World Series. Ramirez floated the concept of the Cubs great finally being welcomed back into the fold in such a bold manner before Tuesday’s series-clinching NLDS Game...

Play a Yogi Berra: 'Who said it?' game

I’m pretty sure my fascination with baseball had everything to do with the love my grandfather and his son (my uncle) had for the sport. And, somehow, Yogi Berra tied into it. Allow me to explain. My grandfather and uncle both had soft spots for the New York Yankees and even though they spent a majority of their formative years in north central Wisconsin, I never questioned it...

A Baseball Player Injured His Teammate In the Dumbest Way Possible

Baseball has had its fair share of dumb injuries over the years. In 2010, reliever Francisco Rodriguez injured his hand by punching his father-in-law. In 2004, feared slugger Sammy Sosa sneezed and sprained his back. Now we have another to join the ranks. On Saturday night, after getting tagged out in a rundown play, San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton trudged back to the dugout...

Sammy Sosa Update: Alive With “Normal-ish” Skin Color

Hey everyone, we here at the BC office would like to interrupt your Wednesday with a small Sammy Sosa update. We have been a little concerned about Sammy’s well being over the past couple of weeks considering we haven’t spotted the guy since he crashed a Miami Art Basel in December. You may remember him looking rather white: Luckily, it looks like Sammy’s okay. He popped up...

Dear Commissioner Manfred: MLB must return to a 154-game season, and the reason is none other than Babe Ruth

Dear Madam or Sir,Quickly now - no Googling - who are the top five MLB single-season HR sluggers? Well, there's Barry Bonds, right? And Mark McGwire? It's Sammy Sosa, it's - um - guys who, if you read pious sportswriters, cannot set foot in Cooperstown without bursting into flames. They represent a dark era in our nation's past - the nineties - when players popped pills to win. ...

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.

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...

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.

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...
