Sorry man, but if they get any of those three it'll be Sosa.


I agree with that. Manny is going nowhere and Nomar has narrowed his supposed list to 4 teams...New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Houston.

Oh god no... signing Sosa would be the stupidest thing this team could do. So it'll probably happen X-I

Yeah, this season's probably going to hurt, especially because it looks like the Dodgers and Giants are stepping up their teams this offseason while we twiddle our thumbs.

But we do have some very promising young guys coming up in the organization now at least. Give us a couple more years, a few good trades, and a little luck. ;-D

Anyone else think Sosa retires? I think he's done. He and Raffy both.

The team has a glut of young OFs. The only thing I see them doing is maybe signing Sosa on the cheap to help put fannies in the seats while they rebuild. That would be their rationale, but in my opinion this is still a stupid waste of money.
