The Incredible, Untradeable Sammy Sosa

ESPN reports that the Cubs are unlikely to trade Sammy Sosa because no team wants to pay him the $18 million in 2006 that becomes guaranteed only if he's traded. And, of course, the Cubs don't have to pay it if they don't trade him.

I expect the Cubs clubhouse will be loads of fun in 2005. But the good news is that Kerry Wood apparently took a baseball bat to Sosa's boombox on Closing Day 2004. He may have enjoyed it so much that he'll do it again.
