Dufners Do NYC, Sammy Sosa Meets Miley Cyrus & Cardale Jones Out & About

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 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...

Sammy Sosa Compared To A Vampire On Twitter (Photo)

  This is the image that is seen floating around Twitter. Leave it to Twitter users to put their two cents in and give their opinion on Sammy Sosa’s new ghostly skin. The whole obsession with bleaching one’s skin or desire to be a lighter skin tone is extremely outrageous. Sammy Sosa has emerged from the crypt and others also seem to think so. This is one meme we conjured up...

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...

Sammy Sosa is Looking Different Again. Again

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...

Now is the Time for Cubs to Reunite With Sammy Sosa

First things first… the elephant in the room.  Did Sammy Sosa cheat?  As far as black letter law, yes.  He was caught with a corked bat on June 3, 2003.  That violates the rules, which he was caught and punished for, whether he used the bat intentionally or not.  The New York Times also reported that Sosa showed up on the 2003 survey of PED users.  Sosa himself said, under...

Today in Baseball History, Chicago Team Robbed of a Title

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the 1994 when Major League Baseball canceled the rest of the season including the World Series for the eighth work stoppage in 22 years at the time. It prevented Tony Gwynn from chasing .400. It may have single handly killed the Montreal Expos franchise. Some would argue the desperation caused by the 1994 strike paved the way for steriods and the...

Hall of Fame Changes Eligibility Rules

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Over the past quarter-century, seemingly every aspect of Major League Baseball has been influenced by the steroid-era and on Saturday, the performance enhancing drug users effectively transformed the Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame’s board cut a player’s eligibility from 15 years to 10, which gives McGwire a maximum of two more appearances on the writers’ ballot.

How great would it be for the Braves to trade for Marlon Byrd? Byrd and Ervin reunited.

I know Ciara just had a baby not too long ago but this drastic transformation is not working for her. She needs to get back to the Ciara we all know and somewhat tolerated.

IMAGES: Sammy Sosa’s Transformation from Dominican to Dracula

He helped save the game of baseball in 1998 with his home run race with Mark McGwire, but a corked bat and alleged steroid use has made him an outcast in Chicago. Even more weird is the fact that Sosa has gone from a dark normal looking dominican man to a white ghostly dracula looking dude. His look...
