Proposal: Bring Sammy Back

So there's an article here (http://www.chicagonow.com/chicago-sports-fan-talk/2013/01/the-time-is-now-for-the-chicago-cubs-to-welcome-back-sammy-sosa/) that suggests that Sammy Sosa should be brought back into the fold. I don't think it's a secret that I don't think Sammy did anything illegal, nor do I think it's a secret that I think the Cubs treated Sosa badly. I agree with much of this article: Sammy did a hell of a lot for the Cubs (and Chicago AND the MLB in general) and doesn't deserve to be villified the way he has been.

I don't know if Sosa going to the Convention would entice me to go over the Convention without him, but I certainly think he could be an asset to the Cubs in a variety of PR roles, particularly with their Latin American efforts.

So, what do you think?
