Selig, the McCaskeys and the Ricketts were introduced at the 100th Anniversary game and were not booed. Sosa would have been fine.

Tom Ricketts is meeting with the media in Kane County.

@KevinDruley: Ricketts jokes, "Does anybody have an easier question?" when asked about #Cubs making overtures to Sammy Sosa.


@KevinDruley: #Cubs' Ricketts acknowledges it's complicated issue and sees that other clubs reach out to past known PED users. Said not sure what's next.

The series against the Orioles? They can celebrate the trade just as the team is approaching it's ~75th loss of the year.

Known?


Suppose that depends on whether you consider appearing in the Mitchell Report known or not

EDIT - NM, that was the grimsley affidavit

ESPN wrote:In October 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported that the names of Clemens, Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons were among those blacked out. Tejada's name was mentioned when Grimsley described a conversation he had with Baltimore Orioles teammates Tejada, Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa about how they would play after baseball banned amphetamines.


Hell of a smoking gun, PTR

Mark Gonzales ‏@MDGonzales 1m1 minute ago
Theo said Manny received rave reviews from young hitters. Said Sammy's status is being handled in other "circles."


stop being stupid Tom

What does that even mean? Ricketts quote, not your post.

Theo basically said he'd be open to hiring Sosa should things get settled but made it clear that's basically Rickett's call and not his.

If you follow Sammy on Facebook he just uploaded an album from his birthday bash in Dubai. He's wearing Mideast garb and everything riding into the desert sands in Hummers at night.
