I don't. He needs to stay healthy, and even still he's been declining steadily for the last few years. (Insert perfect fit for the Mets joke here)

As a Mets fan, I agree ... he's toast. Drastically declining numbers for the last four years 8-o All of which means Minaya will go after him hard and he'll simply follow the Alomar, Vaugh, Burnitz legacy that Steve Phillips started :-o :~(

Take a chance on him late, but I wouldn't hold your breath.
I'm back. Sorta.

I agree he is done in terms of being an elite fantasy player. In terms of your specific question, however, I think he may still be able to slug 35 on the off chance he stays healthy, but there will be a crappy BA associated with that.

I think that Sosa still has more left in the tank than most of us are giving him credit for. We aren't going to get anymore 320/.400/.625, 60 HR seasons out of him, but I think that a .270/.350/.550, 40+ HR season or two is well within the realm of possibility. I have a hard time believing that he is truly as bad as he was last year.......What we also have to remember is that he struggled with health issues last season and was limited to 478 AB and he still hit 35 HRs. Give him another 100 AB and a season uninterrupted by injury and I think we'd all be singing a different tune.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Roids and Cork are left...I think he may still post decent numbers for a 3rd or 4th fantasy OF, but that is about it. The days of a top 2 round pick are over.

Here's a guy who we're so used to hitting 60 homeruns, so we curse him when he hits 35. I think he will hit 40 next year without a sweat. But again, that's probably the same amount of hits he'll have too, so you take the good and the bad with Sosa. I won't draft him, but he'll help!

Even if minya likes him, hes not going to trade for him
the only people that want him out of everyone in the mets organizaition are him and one other person
i doubt/hope hes not going to go against everyone else
