That being said, I like Thome much more than Sosa. So I'll take Thome
I'm not here to make fun of anyone but that is the most rediculous statements ever. Hell you didn't even put in one of his better years in 2002. Also thats not even close to one of the best 4 year streches. Just recently Bonds would absolutely kill Sammy's 4 years, Frank Thomas was extremely better. Pujols and Manny could be argued better. Bagwell and McGwire were better hitters, hell Giambi 1999-2002 was just as good if not better hitter. Thats just talking about players recently not any of the all time greats.
All that being said Sosa had four very good years and one phenominal year. That phenominal year in 2001, Thome would/will never be that good. But Thome had more above average years in my opinion. Very close, but I give the slight edge to Sosa, but I could change my mind.
