Sammy Needs $7M To Play Next Year
Free-Agent Sammy Sosa told reporters that he will retire next season unless a team can offer him a $7M contract. Sammy, I'm sorry but you have lost it. His 676OPS last year against RHP was quite pathetic, and he would be lucky to get $1M next year. He did drive in quite a few runs, but was absolutely horrific in the outfield.
Looks like Sammy's return will be short-lived, as he's put an absolutely embarrasing offer on the table. He could, however, just have made that claim to prove that the team he signs with is getting a "bargain" but I doubt it.
