Tuned in just as Sammy hit #600. Nice to see that it was off of a Cubs pitcher while he's a Ranger and that it was hit in Texas. Sort provides a bookend for his career while summing it all up, too.

I know it's tradition at The Ballpark, but do you think it's really appropriate for the theme from "The Natural" to be played when Sammy Sosa hits a homer?

Just askin'...

I wonder how many home runs he would have hit by now if he had taken steriods like Bonds? Big props to Sammy for only using Flintstones vitamins to radically spurt his growth.

I always avoided Scammies at bats when he was on the Cubs. It seemed like whenever I watched, he hit home runs. Like all of us, I was tired of his act by mid 1998. I just happened on the game, and left it on while he came to bat. Funny, his home run feels pretty good tonight, as it will help the Cubs to be 8 games out of first. This is the first baseball related thing that I can smile about today.:smile:

Barry did not take steroids. He just used some creme to fight off dry skin.

BBTN just showed his first ever (off Roger Clemens!). He looks like he weighed 110 pounds dripping wet. His batting helmet hardly fits on his head because he's so skinny (BBTN called him "slim/trim Sammy Sosa").

Must have been that Charles Atlas book he sent away for that pumped him up.

They showed some of his other "notable" home runs. They forgot the broken bat single he got when our own Toby Hall noticed something funny about the inside of the bat.......

He did for a year, but MLB missed him so much, he had to return. Just like Michael Jordan and the NBA.:rolleyes:

I didn't see the game (duh!),. but I hear tell he seems to be somewhat smaller for some reason. Prolly just been on some weirdass diet.

It's the water down there in the D.R.

BTW, check this (http://www.latinamericanstudies.org/dominica.htm) out:
Scroll all the way down to the sports section. Sammy Sosa is like the only thing that matters down there. He's like the Yankees of the D.R.

Rangers owner Tom Hicks is lamenting (http://tinyurl.com/2d23ou) that he gave Juan Gonzalez "$24 million after he came off steroids." According to Hicks, "We just gave that money away." I'm thinking he included a clause in Sammy's deal to ensure that he stays on the juice.

I doubt he will.

I think his goal is 800.

After watching the video of Shammy's hr on MLB.com I realized hes done a Jason Giambi with the amount of weight *er* juice that he has cut back on.

As our good friend Phil Rogers just pointed out in the Trib's new Hardball blog (http://blogs.chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports_hardball/), Sammy probably takes special satisfaction in hitting his 600th off the Cub who now wears #21.

The 600 Club: Aaron, Bonds, Ruth, Mays, and Sosa. :puking:

This live press conference is a joke (on Comcast now), someone just said 'There were a lot of Cubs fans in attendance and you could tell they were all cheering (:rolleyes:), how does that make you feel? He answered that they'll cheer for him anywhere (:rolleyes:)


Anyone there have the balls to ask a real question?

The only reason that quote isn't followed by the puking emoticon is that I just used it in my last post. :cool:

No. They last tough questions Corky was asked came from congress and before that Rick Reilley. We know how he answered those.

The reporters were too amazed to discover that Sammy learned to speak English so well since his congressional testimony.

Sweet jeebus, it's a miracle!

I come bearing garbage for all: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2875680

Here's a fun game: which baseball analysts' "analysis" is filled with the most flaws? I vote for ole' reliable, Steve Phillips. He distinguishes Sosa from McGwire b/c Sosa denied using 'roids in front of Congress, while McGwire never affirmatively denied such. Steve Phillips, please meet Rafael Palmeiro.

Our buddy Steve continues, "In fact, consider that Sosa did get busted for corking a bat during his playing days. Why would a player on steroids cork his bat? He wouldn't." Brimming with so much insight you could shake a stick at him!

Roger's actually wrote that? He is a moron.

Meh, funny that Sammy goes to Texas, Texas becomes the worst team in MLB. Texas wanted him for the milestone, now they got it, and its pre-all star break.

Wonder how they'll fill seats now.

Cheaters pick one method of cheating and stick to it. There's a code of honor; one cheat per customer.

Also, yes, it was a miracle we witnessed when Sammy suddenly learned to speak English while holding his press conference. Alert the clergy.

You're absolutely right Nellie. It's right there in black and white in section 34, article 14 of "Cheaters Local 152" union employee handbook: "One cheating method can only be used at one specific time. Any attempt to combine cheating methods can result in termination of employment and benefits.":tongue:

After every Sosa home run two things should happen.

1) piss test

2) bat x-ray
