With the season over, you would think that Sammy Sosa was the MVP of the league due to the amount of newspaper coverage he has gotten over the last few days. I was browsing around today to see what I could find about the rumors surrounding the possible trade. Here is what I found, so enjoy:

This is going to be an interesting off season. Last year we all held our breath as Sammy decided if he was going to opt out of his deal. This year we hold our breath to see if our hero, Jim Hendry, can opt us out of the deal.

Side Note

NOTE: Broadcast reports in San Francisco have Sonny Jackson possibly replacing Wendell Kim as third-base coach for the Cubs, with Kim shifting to first. First-base coach Gene Clines reportedly would replace Gary Matthews as hitting coach. General manager Jim Hendry said he and manager Dusty Baker would meet this weekend to discuss the coaching staff.
