Sosa will hit for 10+ more HRs. There was a segment on Baseball tonight about how he changed hes stance a little so he could hit the inside pitch. Also lookin at hes career month by month production, hes hit 124hrs in august, while the hes best in other months is only 106hrs.

edit: also Javy back and depending on who bats infront of who, Sosa could get better protection or more men on base for him to deliver.

Well, Sammy should enjoy the milestone because its the last one he'll ever reach. Perhaps the adrenaline of breaking a record will help him out for a few days, as it did Palmeiro, but that's it. To say that Sammy has been a disappointment is an understatement. Jeered out of Chicago, many "experts" thought the friendly confines of Camden would do him good. However, Baltimore has been no kinder to Sammy:
Didn't think about the fact that Wrigley isn't a bad place to hit at either he's booed at the plate when he hits in Baltimore, and the cork must be harder to come by.
Whatever the reason for his failures, you can't dispute the numbers, his ops has been sliding, his strikeouts rising, and his power dwindling. An baseball icon just a few short years ago, sadly Sammy's fall from grace is far from being over. He'll hit 10 more homeruns,in the wind-aided confines of Camden, but that's it.

I'm gonna say 10-12 more. With Lopez back in the lineup, there's even less pressure on him to be one of the top sluggers in that lineup. In his last 3 seasons he's got a .599 SLG and 1.002 OPS post all star break. That puts him in the top 3 hitters on the team. Throw in the fact that the O's are facing some of the worst pitching staffs down the stretch (9 games vs. TB, 9 vs. TOR) and you can pencil Sammy in for at least 10 more homers.
