Oh, I thought he was admitting he'd never make it past 40 HR's because he's off the 'Flintstone Vitamins". :D:

If he keeps playing like he has so far this year, he won't have to worry about voluntarily retiring...

So far, he is 5/25 with no runs or RBIs... well worth the money, I say!

So I guess he'll be retiring after next year, then?

Get off the juice and seeing 40 years of age is a good possibility

I love what Buster Olney said about Shammy during his web chat today:

Ed (Huntsville, AL): Do you think Sosa will ever hit a homerun?

http://espn-att.starwave.com/i/sn2.gif Buster Olney: Ed: Sure, he'll hit 25 to 30. But he looks terrible at the plate, and his at-bats that I've seen look like the swings of somebody whose trying to do nothing more than jack the ball. Meanwhile, most of the other Orioles look intent on just trying to hit the ball hard someplace and continuing the inning. Stands out like a sore thumb. The other day, he took a big swing and hopped out of the batter's box like he had just gone deep -- and the O's were down something like 6-0. The ball was caught in front of the warning track; it was embarrassing to watch.

We've seen this from Sammy for years now, yet he was still worshipped as a God by the mindless sheep on the North Side. Go figure...:rolleyes:

Another thing- Many many people believe that Shammy isn't 36, (b 1968), but more like 38 or 39. It's been a rumor for a while that he's older than he says he is. (How out of character for him to lie about something !) So, maybe that means he'll retire in the next year or two.:o:

He knows without the juice he's average at best.
