Slam This Sammie!

Sammy Sosa

There’s some pretty darn good pedigree up for induction in this year’s Cooperstown class. Which, by the way, if you haven’t visited the absolutely awesome Baseball Hall of Fame, take the ones you love and hop in the SUV and get there in 2015.

This year’s inductees that are returning include:

Craig Biggio (74.8%), Mike Piazza (62.2%), Jeff Bagwell (54.3%), Tim Raines (46.1%), Roger Clemens (35.4%), Barry Bonds (34.7%), Lee Smith (29.9%), Curt Schilling (29.2%), Edgar Martinez (25.2%), Alan Trammell (20.8%), Mike Mussina (20.3%), Jeff Kent (15.2%), Fred McGriff (11.7%), Mark McGwire (11.0%), Larry Walker (10.2%), Don Mattingly (8.2%) and Sammy Sosa (7.2%).

Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz, along with sluggers Carlos Delgado and Gary Sheffield, two-time batting champion Nomar Garciaparra and lock-down closer Troy Percival are the new candidates.

Baseball will make their announcement today.

So will the Canuck Cubbie should Sammy Sosa end up in the sacred halls. I don’t like the guy. I will disown baseball if Slammin’ Sammie gets in.

Stay tuned for that announcement.

Believe it,

Mark

    Can’t wait for that surprising post…perhaps it’s because of his (semi) new freak show status?

    Sammy and the Cubs need to kiss and make up. Too much time has passed, and wounds should be healed by now. He probably won’t ever be a HOFer, but the Cubs could still honor him somehow. Bring him back for an old-timers day or something.

      I agree with that. Mending fences are good but retiring jerseys and HOF honours are reserved for guys like the Johnsons, Martinez and Jeters
