Yawn.

Another pro-Flubbie/Soso-worshipping puff piece from the mainstream national media. Again, I reiterate,

Yawn.

Sammy Sosa came to the Cubs in 1992 as a skinny, 23-year-old outfielder with his third major league team and with 29 career home runs. He left with a hugely muscled body and 574 home runs.
How do you think that might have happened? I, for one, am puzzled.

He already told you. Flintstone vitamins. He must have been taking only the "Bam-Bam" ones. The "Pebbles" ones don't pack nearly the same punch.

If you liked that article, you'll love this one:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/o...ck=1&cset=true

The Chicago National League Newsletter wrote an gooey editorial today that blew kisses to Sammy as he left town. No mention, of course, of how much he boosted the corporate income while he was cheating his way into the hearts of the sportswear-clad lemmings who fill their ballpark.

Bah.

I cannot wait until Frank Thomas gets the same warm sentiments from the Chicago media when he retires/leaves.......
