“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest”

And now, your WTF moment of the day. Sammy Sosa has a Pinterest page. And every picture has the words listed in the headline as the caption.

I was on the fence with respect to Sosa’s Hall of Fame case before this, but now I am firmly against him. Someone has to protect the children.

Hisashi Iwakuma tells the Japan Times that the Mariners have made him an offer to return.

Iwakuma became a free agent earlier this month after the Mariners, not surprisingly, declined his $10 million option for 2018. Iwakuma says that it’s “not a done deal,” but “hopefully I will be able to make a positive announcement soon.”

Iwakuma, who turns 37 early next season, made only six starts in 2017, posting a 4.35 ERA, 3.5 BB/9 and 4.6 SO/9 over 31 innings. He went on the disabled list in May and never returned to action, undergoing arthroscopic debridement surgery in September. He hopes to be recovered fully by spring training.
