Sammy Sosa comparing himself to Jesus
Sammy is going deep in an interview with Former Cubs media relations employee Chuck Wasserstrom. He was throwing stuff out there maybe just to get a little attention. I’m not sure why he said anything of this but here you go.
“I never wanted to leave Chicago. I should have handled that situation differently, yes indeed,” Sosa told Wasserstrom. “I recognize my mistake. But look, I have my pride, and I know I had a tremendous career in Chicago. When nobody knew who Chicago was, I put Chicago on the map. Like you said, if I could have done it again, I would have done it differently.”
“A lot of people say so many things, but I’m telling you — they have nothing on me,” Sosa said. “I’m not going to go out there begging, because they have no case. They had the Mitchell Report trying to find something, but they had nothing on Mr. Sosa.”
He added: “Chuck, it’s like Jesus Christ when he came to Jerusalem. Everybody thought Jesus Christ was a witch (laughing), and he was our savior. So if they talk s*** about Jesus Christ, what about me? Are you kidding me?”
Ok now if you don’t see this right this is Sammy Sosa comparing his persecution in Chicago to Jesus Christ. It’s just great stuff for a Tuesday.
“Hey, if they send me an invitation, then I would definitely say ‘Yes,'” he said. “This is my house — no matter what happened (at the end). My numbers — nobody is going to take them from me. Not even Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks, hit that many home runs. And I did it with style (laughing). But if they invite me, why not? One day, if they invite me, a lot of people will be very happy about it.”
I’ll be the first one to say that I think McGwire and Sosa saved baseball. At the end of Sosa’s career though, I’m ok if people just erase him from the Cubs. There is cheating in baseball from steroids which to tell the truth I don’t even care and then there is looking like a complete dumbass when you cork your bat. I have no tolerance for actually cheating. Corking your bat or spitting up the ball for pitchers should be out of the game totally.
This guy just wanted to get some attention in the news. Sosa just looks so dumb here and if he gets called back to the Cubs he might get a mixed reaction. But he will never be loved in the City ever again.
