Sammy Sosa wants to be friends with the Cubs again

Sammy Sosa and the Cubs haven’t been on speaking terms for a long time now, but Sosa at least seems interested in reconciling.

In talking to CSNChicago.com for an upcoming documentary, Sosa said of potentially coming back to Wrigley Field:

One hundred percent. I cannot wait for that day. I would be willing to do that anytime they decided to do it. I would be happy to go out there and be on Wrigley Field. Make sure that people see me again, make sure that I’m there, because the memories they have about Sammy Sosa are big and the love that they have for me is big. When the day comes, when the time is right, I’ll be there.

Of course, it should be noted that Sosa said similar stuff back in January and the Cubs have basically ignored it since then, including owner Tom Ricketts calling the whole situation “awkward.”

    Don’t do it Cubs, it’s a trick. Vampires need you to invite them inside, don’t do it.

      You just have to sit through a quick time share presentation and he’ll give you a signed photograph to reward your big love for him.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Sammy again; because the last time we saw him at the Latin Grammy Awards; his skin was bleached and his eyes were green.

      Jeesh Henry. That’s uncalled for. Scary…scary stuff.
      You do realize we can’t un-see that right?

    Go away white Sammy!!!

    I’m sure they could find a hot dog vendor job for Sammy if they really tried.

    Prove Steroids helped Sosa

      …or the cork in his bat… even though in “The Mythbusters” they did a half-assed experiment to prove cork doesn’t help, they ended up dismissing the changes in velocity of the bat and used an angle basically impossible to have while swinging a bat.

        Adam Wainwright just stated it helps you if you think it helps you. It doesn’t help you if you think it doesn’t help you. Or something like that. Was he referring to corked bats, steroids or jumping jacks? Hell…I don’t know. Henry’s link to the ghost of Sammy Sosa has me all kinds of screwed up.

    He’s going to stand outside Wrigley with a t-shirt that says, “Seamos amigos!!!”…but he can’t stand out there too long- he has to be wary of sunburn nowdays. It’s the white man’s burden.

      You couldn’t get a sunburn right now in Chicago if you were an Albino.

    I love when guys like him talk about themselves in the first person. What a clown, a first class clown, and a big time cheat to boot……

      Nah man you’re missing the point.. There are two Sammies.. He’s just the evil clone.

    I don’t know of on cub fan that has mentioned his name let alone any love for him in a decade.

  9. 6ball - Oct 9, 2013 at 3:06 PM

    .

    His English has improved so much, he could be spokesman for Rosetta Stone.

    “Because the memories they have about Sammy Sosa are big and the love that they have for me is big.”

    Lol, Sammy never change.

  11. chiadam - Oct 9, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    Isn’t he busy hanging out at Banana Republic with other white people?

  12. onbucky96 - Oct 9, 2013 at 4:17 PM

    What? I thought Sosa forgot English.

  13. earpaniac - Oct 9, 2013 at 4:29 PM

    I love how he talks about all the love the fans have for him, so he wants to go back. Don’t do us any favors Sammy. And glad to see the Hooked on Phonics kicked in.

    I’d also like rainbows to shoot out of my butt and a tree to grow money, but that doesn’t always happen, does it?

    Don’t reply to this scam. You will be taken for all you’re worth.
