According to this article, the Chicago Cubs have fined Sammy Sosa, who stands to make $16 million next year, $87,500 for coming to Sunday's last regular season game late, not suiting up and leaving after the second inning.
Bush league bastard. I'd release his ass. Number one, he makes more in one day at the ballpark than most of the fans make in a year. Hell, than most of the fans make in two years. Number two, he's the captain of the team. He ought to be there, in uniform, ready to play the game, even if the manager's going to sit him for the day. He owes that much to his teammates. And number three, the Cubs would be a far more tolerable organization without his parading around and jumping up and down after home runs. Personally, I don't see why some pitcher in the National League hasn't stuck the ball in Sammy's ear in his next at-bat after one of those.
Thanks. Just had to get that off of my chest.
