    It was pretty sad to see Sosa bumble his way through the last season, although not really surprising. He was a darn good player in his prime, certainly one of the best for his era. I'm not sure how the steroid and corking accusations will effect his HOF chances, but his numbers say he'll get in. I hope he does. I also hope that he signs a one-year deal with somebody so he'll get to 600 homers, although he says it's not that important to him. If this is it for Sammy, congrats to him for a strong career. How about one last season with the Cubbies? Yeah, right.
