Sosa - does he still have it?

I don't trust him - what can I expect for him in a trade?

He still has 20 inch arms, which means he still has 40-50 HR power. He is not going to bat .300, but he is still a top 5 HR-RBI guy.

You can expect to get any tier 2 hitters, and maybe some of the lower range elites.

You can probably get any pitcher not named Prior, RJ, Schilling, Pedro, or Halladay.

Not necessarily true. I'm a Sosa fan, but his bat speed has slowed down alot the past 2 years. I still look for 40hr's and 100+rbi, but look for his average to go down and his k's to go up.

Is it even mathematically possible for his K's to go up???

His trade value shouldn't be too tough to figuree. Every one knows who he is and what he can do. I think he is a borderline top 20 pick, but certainly a top 30 pick. Look at the guys who went between picks 20 and 30 and take your pick.

there will always be someone who will overpay for a name....sosa is no better than a whole slew of OF's you can get for much cheaper.

try and move him for a slight "downgrade" at OF (try for a berkman, lee, etc) and get another guy thrown in to help in another area (lower-tier closer perhaps). good luck ;-D
