If you scroll down to the portion of the article where the statistics are shown, you will notice that an error has been made in Sammy Sosa's stats, specifically, in the "years" column. The Cubune has listed that Sosa is in his thirteenth season. I know that's not correct. Frank Thomas is in his fourteenth season, and Sosa has been in the Majors longer than he has.

The Cubune is even more sloppy than usual. I hope they weren't trying to pull something with those numbers.

According to Baseball-reference.com, this is Sosa's 15th season. He began his career in 1989 with the Rangers.

Thomas is playing in his 14th season.

That's what I thought. I wonder how the Cubune missed that. Hmm...
