Saving It For When It Counts
by alex ciepley
Whiff! Sammy Sosa swings and misses at the second ball thrown his way. Sosa made up for that bit of embarrassment later in the first round with four consecutive home run swings, but he failed to make it past the first round in last night's home run derby. The good news for Cubs fans is that:
a) he didn't wrench his back or anything stupid
b) this doesn't count
Still, it woulda been nice to see Sammy hit a few more out and upstage that Astros guy.
