One Step Closer to Getting Rid of Sosa - Say it's So!

I can't even tell you how excited I am that Sosa is closer to leaving Chicago. It's unfortunate that Sammy acted the way he has for the past couple years. Did his true colors come out last year on the last day of the season? I don't know, but that was the last straw for this Cub fan.

Union Approves Sosa Trade

I have a real problem with the Cubs going after Jeromy Burnitz. A lifetime .254 hitter? Sure he had 37 homeruns last year, but that was for Colorado. Don't waste the money.

One other thing! Please remember the lessons learned from Large Long Term Contracts (LLTC). They are wrong for the team and wrong for Baseball. All contracts should be incentive filled to the max. Take a look at what players usually do in the last year of any contract. Big Numbers!
