Woke up this morning. Picked up the paper outside the door to my hotel room and scanned the headlines. Had to laugh at the one about Sammy Sosa wanting to come back. Not that I’m glad he’s gone, it’s just he doesn’t register.
All he could do — and there’s no guessing why — was hit home runs with that self-promoting bunny hop out of the box. Both the Yankees and Mets had their chance at him and were lucky it didn’t happen. Let him stay away and fade from our memories.
A Hall of Famer? He has 500 homers, but are they real homers? Tend to doubt it. Going, going, gone … let him stay away.
