Sosa: I'm irreplaceable

February 24, 2005

BY CHRIS DE LUCA Staff Reporter



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- To his former teammates -- notably Kerry Wood and Mark Prior -- who say the Cubs are better off without him, Sammy Sosa offered a pointed reply Wednesday.

''I understand that they are saying right now that they don't need me. They lie,'' Sosa said after his first workout as a Baltimore Oriole. ''I understand they want to move forward and they feel they have a competitive team, but I don't think nobody can replace me. They can say whatever they want to say, but it is going to be hard, my friend, to duplicate me.''

Obviously he hasn't heard of legendary right fielder Jeromy Beernuts.

Prediction: In the first intrasquad game Sosa struckout four times, committed two errors and used three double negatives.

Yeah, well...

Actually, he's right -- it will be hard to duplicate him. It's not often you find a talent-wasting, self-absorbed, cheating drug user who's successful in convincing his employer to pay him millions of dollars.

Too bad the Flubs don't play them this year. Prior and Wood would have a field day.................................

Glad to see Scammy has hired the same PR consultant that Barry Bonds uses.

There isn't anyone who could replace that attitude of arrogance in the Cubs locker room, so yes, he's absolutely correct.

Just reading Sosa's statement makes me want to recite Chevy Chase's rant about his boss in "Christmas Vacation". If only I could remember even one third of it.
