What bothers me is that no one will say anything negative about Sosa because of this. If that man were Frank Thomas' business partner, every paper in Chicago would be calling Frank a "low-life scumbag," or something along those lines.

Import and export company? When I get back to work on Monday I want to run a report on this "corporation". Maybe someone will print it if it's ridiculous enough.

Gee, I can't imagine what the #1 import from the Dominican Republic might be --especially if the guy running the operation has already been convicted of malfeasance running a charitable organization.

Sorry, but I fail to see the connection between the president and director of the Sosa Group, Inc. and a man who introduced himself to DEA agents as Sosa's godfather, and our beloved Sammy. You people are obviously on a fishing expedition here.

Ecstasy isn't the only drug he imported.

Puts that missing "$10K" in a new light now doesn't it?

"Better have the missing money by Monday, or there will be one less power hitter around these parts. These things have a way of happening and sometimes people...er... things get broken."

Let's take stock on the great Sosa:

1. Own charity goes bankrupt
2. Refuses Roid Testing
3. Unsportsmanlike conduct at this years Home Run Derby
4. Possible ties to Ecstasy
5. $20,000 cash in a bag "stolen" from his hotel
6. Leaves team for 4 days in the middle of the season
7. Blew off Dominican charity appearance unless the charity could
furnish Mr.Sosa with a private jet to take him to and from the event

But...the Chicago media will remain silent. After all, it isn't like Frank did this. Then it would be Page 1. As it is, the Sun-Times buried the Sosa article on p.4 of the sports section and had a small blurb about the ecstasy thing in the corner of Sports section cover. :angry:

And every year he shows up late to spring training.
Doesn't respect his teammates (Blasting music and argues with Girardi).

All pitchers deserve the hop for attempting to get my Sammy out in the first place. If there was any justice my Sammy would just be rewarded with a home run for every at bat for all he has done for baseball.

Updated article with quotes from Sosa (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-021011sosa,0,4650873.story?coll=cs%2Dhome%2Dheadli nes)

DEA spokesman Joe Kilmer said the investigation has not shown Sosa was involved with any illegal activities.

"We have no reason to believe Sammy Sosa is involved in any way, shape or form," Kilmer said.

Still Sosa was wary of being linked to the arrest.

"No question that people know my name should not be mentioned in that way," he said. "We don't have a relationship. We haven't spoken in a couple of years."

I dunno. Makes me raise my eyebrows ...

My Sammy lights the world up with his smile!!! And his kisses
and heart taps are just what this country needs!!! The beauty
of Sammy is that he is Sammy!!!! You blasphemous Scum Sox
cretins are jealous that you have no one like him and never

on my radar screen!!!! If it was your sissified Antichrist, I'd be
