There are two sides to Sammy, both hyper-dramatic.
There's the home run hitting machine Sammy,
...and there's the complete opposite end of the scale Sammy.
The one that left.
There's the Sammy in maybe the most famous home run battle of all time with (Mark McGuire), and the one with the lame story about a shattered bat filled with cork that was supposed to be used only to amaze audiences during batting practice.
I don't need any steroid rumor to sway me.
Never has such a selfish player become so popular in Chicago, at least in my lifetime.
If you knew nothing about him but his stats, you might say he belongs in the Hall.
But with the amount of baggage that comes with Sammy, fat chance.
There's a skeleton of a burnt bridge that's gonna take years to fix.
