This is a blog, where I share my thoughts on the world of sports. I grew up near Chicago, so most of my topics will mainly focus on Chicago based sports teams.

Will Sammy Go Whammy against the Cubs?

The Cubs play the Rangers tonight in Texas. This is the first time in two years that the Cubs and Sammy Sosa have crossed paths since their messy divorce. The messy divorce ended with the Cubs sending Sammy to Baltimore for Jerry Hairston jr. and a throw in pick which happened to be Mike Fontenot.

Sammy has a chance to hit his historic 600th homerun against his former team. This would be ironic, that Sammy could hit number 600 against the Cubs instead of it for the Cubs. The Cubs and Sammy seemed like they would be together until Sammy retired. When Sammy walked out on the last game of the 2004 season, he walked out of the Cubs organization hearts and minds.

After the walkout in 2004, the Cubs have washed their hands of Sammy. Sammy has the most home runs in Cubs history and hit number 500 in a Cubs uniform. IT IS SAD, that the Cubs want nothing to do with Sammy. A couple of years ago, Fans could elect the greatest player in their teams history. THE CUBS did not even put Sammy on the ballot. The Cubs organization feel that wronged by the Guy who carried their franchise for the 90's.

Sammy could get some measure of revenge by hitting his historic home run against the Cubs. I hope it does not happen in this series. I hope Sammy hits his home run in Chicago against the SOXS.
