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.
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.
"Sosa... So Long!"
