Steroid-connected sluggers seem to be making the rounds on social media lately. First, there was Jose Canseco's crazy-but-brilliant . . . no, mostly just crazy, New Year's resolutions on Twitter. Now we find out that Sammy Sosa has a Pinterest page.

Sosa has kept a low profile since his days as a power-hitting outfielder came to an end after the 2007 season. On Wednesday, he failed to gain election to the Hall of Fame on his first try -- garnering only 12.5 percent of the vote -- despite ranking eighth on the all-time list with 609 home runs. If you're curious how he feels about this, you can check his relatively new Twitter account (@TheRealMr609) -- irony alert! -- his Facebook page or follow him on Pinterest, where at the moment he seems to like home, posters of himself in a Rangers uniform and yellow sweaters.

We'll update if there's news of Barry Bonds launching his own Tumblr. -- By staff
