Really? Because it didn't sound that way when you were here...

This is what Sammy Sosa recently said out of Baltimore:

"We're playing good baseball. We don't get any excuses. I feel lucky over here. It's early, but we've got a great group of guys that go out every day and take care of business. I'm so proud that every day there is a new hero.

"So it's not only one guy. That's how you win. It's the whole team together. There are good people around here. No jealousy. Everyone is together. And we've got a great Skipper.''

What a joke. "I'm so proud that every day there is a new hero"?? "It's not only one guy"??? "No jealousy"????

That was the whole problem in Chicago. YOU thought you should be the only hero, Sammy. YOU thought you were the only guy. YOU were the one who was jealous when it was crystal-clear you were the fourth or fifth best hitter on the team.

Yet, YOU were the one who got pissy about this stuff. And YOU were the one who brought the team down, with your bullshit stereo and bullshit attitude. YOU had the chance to be a hero again and again and again and again and again and again while wearing the Cubby Blue. And how many times did you do it (that is, when we needed a win--which means 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 did not count)? Once. You tied up Game 1 against the Marlins in the bottom of the ninth. That's about it. You choked big-time last year, when we needed you. The Wild Card was the Cubs' to lose, and you completely disappeared.

I know that this is old stuff, and there are A LOT more problems to worry about as a Cubs fan (such as, well, everyone not named Derek Lee). But this pissed me off.

GA, I almost forgot....I have a Sammy Sosa, Orioles T-shirt jersey for you...I picked one up at the O's/A's game i went to a few weeks ago...
That is actually really awesome--thanks, ezt! I will wear that will a great sense of pride and irony.
That will go great with our collection of current T-Shirt Jerseys: Nomar - Red Sox, Loaiza - White Sox, Sammy - O's, and my latest pick up: Wakefield - Red Sox.
