Sosa... So Long!

I've been so busy lately that I missed this major piece of late-breaking news from the Cubs' lackluster off-season:

Sammy Sosa is headed to the Orioles, pending a physical.

Hope you like salsa music, Baltimore.

The Cub Reporter detailed the news on Saturday and offers a smattering of opinions today. Al Yellon's always good for a thought or two as well.

But about this offseason... Though it was high time for both Sosa and Alou to hit the road, the team's done seemingly little to address their absence behind the plate. I remain cautiously optimistic but, Jim Hendry's reputation for pulling off improbably good trades notwithstanding, does anyone else have that sinking feeling warming up in the pit of their stomach? That's a ripe bit of Cubbie love blooming right there.

Baltimore loves salsa music and the thick and spicey stuff that goes on chips. Now we'll trade a small Duccio for a pitcher.

There are probably a couple Renoirs we'd be willing to part with for a top closer.
