A Team Game

Part of the reason bleacher fans love Sammy Sosa is because of how well he interacts with them before, after -- and yes -- during the game. Brian and I witnessed the right fielder looking back in the stands smiling, gesturing and talking with the bleacher bums on seemingly every at-bat in each game. But even Sammy deserves some heat for the following incident.

On Wednesday, Cubs second baseman Mark Bellhorn misplayed a routine ground ball that allowed Lance Berkman to reach base. Sosa turned to the bleacher section and playfully mimicked Bellhorn's error. Sosa's act prompted a nearby fan to yell the only witticism from a non-Bleacher Geek all series: "Sammy, you're a great team player."

I'm shocked that SamME's antics don't make it in the Cubune.
