Anyone have hope that he'll pick it up? I just traded Sammy Sosa for Jones straight up. I figure he has to turn it on in the second half.

Are you expecting Sosa to tank or something? He has 65 RBI so far this year. 8-o

Not to mention more home runs and, at .255, a much better BA. Maybe he did it for the steals.

I'm expecting Sosa to tank some. He hasn't played a full year recently. Plus it's buying low on Jones. I don't expect Sosa to get any better, lets put it that way. You don't think Jones will be better than Sosa going forward?

Whats the big surprise in that... as much as I have Andruw Jones, and am frustrated with him, he should be better than Sosa. But everyone keeps saying he has to do better, and it keeps not happening (although he has done a little better this week). As much as Jones should be better than Sosa, I'd still hesitate doing that trade... maybe this is just going to be an off year for Jones...

Are we really saying we shouldn't trade Sosa for Jones straight-up? I think I'll take a chance on the 30 year old who's averaged 100 runs 45hr 125rbi .260 over the past two years over the 39 year-old who hasn't accumulated 500 at bats since the 2003 season.
