How quick the media is to cover for this dumb ass. He is, in a word, a jerk. Let's take a look back at all of the stuff Sammy does that the media pretends to forget about. If someone like Frank Thomas did any of these things, Jay Mariotti and the rest of the Chicago media would bring it up daily until the end of time. Everyone talks about how great of a guy Sammy Sosa is. It's all fake. He is a huge ego-maniac, a jerkoff, and HE is a big time cry baby who cares about nothing but money and his image. This is the guy who was late for spring training with the White Sox in 1991 for beating his wife. He was late for spring training in 2000, 2001, and 2002 with the Cubs because he thinks he's on another level than all other baseball players, but at the same time claims to be a "team player". He demands ridiculousamounts of money from the Cubs and for endorsements. He never makes an appearance without receiving an appearance fee.
He loves his homeland?
Don't let him fool you with that act like he's shocked and hurt that people from the Dominican Republic are pissed at him. He knows he's a dickhead and he's just faking it to save his reputation in the U.S. Sosa has been criticized on radio shows and in newspapers in San Pedro de Macoris for not doing enough for the city, still recovering from Hurricane Georges. Sosa was booed by some fans in right field when he threw out the first pitch at a winter league game Oct. 26 in San Pedro. "Sammy Sosa said he was going to rebuild 1,000 houses in San Pedro de Macoris and he hasn't done it," Mayor Sergio Cedeno said. The city also invited Sosa to attend a ceremony at the San Pedro post office when it inaugurated a special "Sammy Sosa 66" seal after the '98 season. Sosa asked for an appearance fee! So Sammy Sosa, the guy who loves his home Country, the guy who makes 10 million a year from the Cubs plus tons more in advertisements, can't give some money to the country he
supposedly would do anything for? What a jerk! "Never is it enough. I want the people in the United States to know I've only done the best I can to help my people. I can only do so much. I can't do everything... I'm still going to be me, I still believe in God." AWwwwwwww.... everybody feel sorry for him. Listen to him trying to play it off.
Sammy said, Don said (2000)
Let's not let everyone forget about all of the nonsense Sammy spewed from his fat lips during the soap opera between he and then Cubs manager Don Baylor. They talked and talked and talked about each other in the newspapers but never face to face. It's like two 8th graders passing notes talking about the other kid but never talking face to face. How Cubs is that? The REAL Sammy was exposed thanks to this little fight. He said some great things. "I cannot make everybody happy," Sosa said. "When Jesus Christ came here he tried to make everyone happy. He's the one guy who was close to perfect and he couldn't do it. Everybody criticized him because he was the real Messiah. So if they criticize him, what about me? That's the way this world is." WOW! He thinks he's Jesus now?! If that's not egotistical enough, listen to what else Sam-ME had to say. "I've been carrying baseball the last two years. Everything I've been doing in baseball in the city of Chicago — I don't deserve this." You don't deserve Don Baylor saying you should improve your fielding? That's all Baylor did. It's not like he kicked Sammy off the team. "From Day One, I am the target. I play hard every day. I don't know what else Sammy Sosa can do. I'm never hurt. Why me? I'm innocent." There's the sign of a real egotistical nut. He starts doing the third person crap. "I feel like those comments about my defense and those things, they're not supposed to be there," Sosa said. "By [saying] those little things, they're not showing me class. I've been here for eight years and you're never going to see me talking against anybody in the paper or pointing a finger. From the first day until now, I'm the same person, but they're saying negative things about me for no reason." Like I said, Baylor simply asked him to improve his fielding, nothing more. Yet he acts like Baylor did some horrible thing to him. "They forget everything, and when they start making some comments, especially from a person who is here for the first year … I've never said anything against him. What's the whole situation here? Does he have something against me? Let me know. I mean, what did I do to you? Why does the person I play for keep saying things that are not appropriate? If I'm going to die for you, why? If I'm missing something, let me know." Yes, Sammy you are missing something. You suck at outfield, all you try to do is hit home runs, and you are a jerk. "He hasn't really treated me the way I'm supposed to be treated. And that's what I'm saying. He has got no class." He has no class? I'd say no class is not showing up to spring training on time. I'd say no class is beating your wife. I'd say no class is demanding appearance fees to appear at a ceremony for you in your home country. "But I'm not going to let it bother me, because I'm a horse. It takes more than that to get me down." It sure as hell seems like it DID bother him. "I'm working hard, busting my ass to try to win every day," Sosa said. "If somebody tells me that I don't want to win, they don't know anything about baseball. When they're going to make some comments about me, they need to be careful about that." I'm sorry but I think Don Baylor does know about baseball Sammy. WHAT A JERK!
"You've said if baseball tests for steroids, you want to be first in line, right?" Reilly kindly asked Sammy at his locker after a game.
"Yes," Sosa replied.
"Well, why wait?" Reilly said.
Reilly then gave Sosa the number for LabCorp in Elmhurst, Ill., 30 minutes from Wrigley. Reilly told him that LabCorp could test for steroids with a blood or urine sample. The lab could have the results back within 10 days. Sosa gave an angry stare at the piece of paper in his hands.
Reilly then told Sammy, "Why wait to see what the players' association will do? Why not step up right now and be tested? You show everybody you're clean. It'll lift a cloud off you and a cloud off the game. It'll show the fans that all these great numbers you're putting up are real." Reilly recalled that at this point "Sosa's neck veins started to bulge."
Sammy then angrily yelled at Reilly, "Why are you telling me to do this? You don't tell me what to do. You're not my father! Why do you tell me what to do? Are you trying to get me in trouble?" HAHAHA! Way to bust yourself moron! How could Sammy get in trouble if he wasn't doing anything wrong? Oh wait, there's more...
"I don't need to go nowhere! I'll wait for the players' association to decide what to do!"
"This interview is over!" He started looking around for security. "Over, motherfucker!!" What a great, lovable guy. Nine years without ever hitting more than 40 home runs. Then all of a sudden he hits 66, 63, 50 and 64. He used to be skinny, 165-pounds, and fast. Now he's a bulky, 230-pound cry baby. Sammy attempt to explain this earlier in the interview with Reilly." This was because of my tooth. When I first came to Texas [in 1989], I had a bad wisdom tooth. The doctor discovered this, and he fixed it. After that, I start to eat much better." OK, sure. Wow, he is a bad liar.
"They think everybody is guilty. They judge me, but they don't know me." Shut up, Sammy. Anyone with half a brain knew you used steroids all along, thank you for confirming it to anyone who had any doubts.
