No Sammy, None of the Time

I have not posted much this week mostly because of outside factors, but the Sosa story is a contributing one. I’m uncomfortable about the trade and sad to see Sammy go despite the fact that I know it was the best thing to do. There’s been a Sammy Sosa poster on a bedroom wall in my house for seven years, and even though its owner is now old enough to understand the situation with the player and the team, I’m glad that our last visit to Wrigley Field ended with a 10th inning Sosa walk-off homer to beat the Astros 5-4 (on July 1st last year).
