Sammy Sosa is one of the most talked about players in baseball. Along with Mark McGwire, Sosa helped save baseball in 1998 when they both passed Roger Maris for most home runs in a season. Sosa hit 66 and Big Mac hit 70.

Slammin' Sammy is the only player to hit 60+ homers in three different seasons. Sosa hit 609 home runs and won an MVP award during his career.

His career did come with some road bumps. Sosa was caught using a corked bat. He walked out on the Cubs at the end of the 2004 season. On top of all this, it is now being reported that he tested positive for steroids in 2003.

Sammy was once loved by all Cub fans. He is now disliked by most.

But I still have all respect for him and he is still my favorite player. I believe that one day, I will go to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and see his plaque.
