Speculation? Might he go back to the Rangers and replace Bradley?

He can probably still be part of a DH platoon, but that's about it.

I'd like to play for a MLB team in 09 too but I don't see either one happening.

He could have played last year if his demands weren't so steep. If he was willing to accept a minor league contract with incentives he'd be signed today. But expecting someone to give you $7m just because is pretty unrealistic.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

When will he finally just go away forever? Every year he seems to make some noise about how teams should be lucky to have him and he should not have to initiate negotiations, etc.

The reality is that he's a washed-up relic of the steroid era who is now at best a platoon player.

Good luck waiting on those teams, Sammy.

The team that signs Manny should sign Sosa.
