Sosa traded to the Orioles 

According to a report just aired on ESPN, Sammy Sosa has been traded to the Orioles, for Jerry Hairston and two minor leaguers.

The Cubs are kicking in some cash, supposedly, and the whole thing depends on Selig's approval.

Sure, Sosa is going through a precipitous decline, but with the Cubbies picking up $10 Million of Sammy's '05 salary, I think that the Orioles are getting a nice deal here. He may be capable single-handedly of spreading cancer through the O's clubhouse, but Angelos' team is going nowhere anyway and trying to minimize the loss of their fan base to the newcomer Nationals.

That said, I'm very very glad that the Rangers didn't make a run at Sosa.
I'm not sure what to think of this deal.
