Sammy Sosa speaks out

We were wondering when we were going to hear from Sammy Sosa. Today, on the website, Ustream.com, Sosa was asked if he felt that he and/or Mark McGwire should be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame he answer simply “I think so” and that “time will determine everything” and that he does not want to seek any controversy. We are not sure if he had an interpreter with him when he said it…..

Our retro joke aside, neither he nor McGwire were even close on this year’s HOF ballot. In fact, Big Mac’s vote support has hit an all-time low indicating to many that his HOF chances are remote at best. This was the first year in a long time where nobody was selected and the players associated with performance enhancing drugs received far less votes than their statistical achievements would have indicated they should. We are curious if we will hear more from Sammy, or perhaps Rafael Palmeiro who has remained relatively silent.

One thing we know for sure is that this is a story that is not going away!
