Jimmy is taking the week off to get a headstart on his Derek Jeter Valentine's Day Card. He'll return on Jan. 3. Good thing he didn't make plans to visit Venezuela and see Yorvit Torrealba in action. The Rangers catcher, playing in the Venezuelan League, was suspended for the rest of this season from the Winter League and all of next year (66 total games) after smacking an umpire in the face during a heated discussion.

Scary Sammy
Sammy Sosa visited Panama last week, and presented the President and First Lady with an autographed posted of himself. For some reason, the poster showed Sosa on the Rangers (where he hit 22 career home runs) instead of the Cubs (where he hit 545). Also of note is Sosa's skin, which seems to get lighter every time he is photographed.
Al's Big Catch
Congrats to Hawks center Al Horford, who married Miss Universe 2003 on Christmas Eve.

Hope Dworaczyk, the 2010 Playmate of the Year, was not impressed with Lindsay Lohan's Playboy photos, saying the actress should've worked out more before the pics were taken. And cattiness like that is rewarded in Hot Clicks, especially when you look like Dworaczyk.
