The Chicago Cubs invited both Hall of fame pitcher Greg Maddux and infielder Ryne Sandberg to the Cub Convention this weekend.
Here is what so many voters like Simmons fail to understand. The Hall of Fame is a museum, and voters are being asked to choose what players get highlighted in that museum. Museums are supposed to represent—accurately—history.
As for Sammy, the door back to to Wrigley can remain dark. And he can build his own statue somewhere else.

This is Sammy Sosa now.
Are you ready for some good ol’ public flogging and moral superiority that results essentially in nothing but another baseball dry hump?
When the month of June drew to a close exactly 15 years ago, it was about to become the greatest individual home run month in the history of baseball. Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire electrified America, but we would soon learn that it had all happened during the heart of the steroid era.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of Sammy Sosa’s ejection in the first inning of a game against the Devil Rays for using a corked bat.
Here are five Windy City athletes who looked the weirdest playing for a team other than the one they’re best known for.
Sammy Sosa is one of the game’s Marlboro Men, a mascot of old that seems so wrong today.
By Dave Wischnowsky – (CBS) When it comes to Sammy Sosa’s future, AOL Fanhouse columnist Lisa Olson has a bold prediction. “Within a few years,” she wrote in a column published on Thursday, “the Cubs […]
Slammin’ Sammy also said the Chicago Cubs should retire his number.
Retired from the game of baseball, Sammy Sosa now manages a comapny called Injex 21, which specializes in needleless drug injections.
I absolutely hate Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame voting.
I don’t think they want to see No. 21 tap his heart at home plate any time in the foreseeable future – and probably for much longer.
With a slew of all-time greats in their first year of eligibility for Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame, the summer of 2013 should be a banner one for Cooperstown.
As a kid, the guy was my favorite player, so I’m certainly biased. But when it comes to keeping score of the all-time greatest Hall of Fame induction speeches, I think Ryne Sandberg’s wins in a rout.
For those wishing to trade a 22-year-old Castro, be very careful what you wish for.
Ryan Braun shouldn’t keep his MVP. Not if the test result showing that the Milwaukee Brewers’ star left fielder and 2011 NL MVP had elevated levels of synthetic testosterone in his system this past season is indeed upheld upon appeal.
Derek Jeter stole all the headlines in pursuit of career hit 3,000. Meanwhile, no one is noticing that Jim Thome is nearing an even rarer feat.
