Sosa rejects Nats offer

Postby thedude » Wed Feb 15, 2006 2:16 pm

According to XM radio. Sosa has rejected the Nationals 1yr/500,000 contract.


It is looking like Sosa is done as a major leaguer.

This guy is a joke, with all the rumors around him its best he just retire. I would have been greedy(like he is) personally and hit the 12 more HRs, then faked an injury (like he does) and retired or something, but thats up to him.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Teams noticed that the ban on steroids coincided with Sammy's lost in productivity. He can no longer upgrade to a cork bat, and now the ban for a first 'roid offense has risen to 50 days.

Now that would keep any team away from this guy.

Looking back at his stats is interesting....he has virtually no power in the minors and early on in his MLB career...then all of a sudden he goes crazy nd puts up huge (laughable) numbers. And not to mention the ridiculous corked back ordeal.

People only loved Sosa because of the media portraying him as this cuddly, lovable Latino guy who loves Pepsi and pointing up when he hits a home run (not to mention that silly chest-poung/sideway peace sign combo he does... ugh!). Steroids or not, between the corked bat and his outrageously horrible '05 season, it's time to pack it up.

Get rid of him. He should have retired a long time ago.

Corkey's finally done?

See ya! :-°


Sorry, the whole "accidentally used" a corked bat thing just flat out didn't fly with me. I actually liked Sammy before that happened. Now I could care less.
