After watching this little .235-hitting runt standing at the plate tonight, I hereby propose Sosa's new nickname be Mini-samME.

Who's with me?

How about "The Invisible Man?"

Better yet "Former baseball player"

I think the nickname "Skinny" conveys the proper message.

I don't know what to call him, but after what 26, 27 years and he still doesn't know what a breaking pitch is?

Poor Baltimore, although I have no idea why they wanted him in the first place.

I did notice how clear his skin is compared to the 'roid days. Maybe he can get a Clearasil commercial. Similar to Mark McGwire at the Senate hearings, clear skin and head half the size compared to his playing days.

Could Sammy have possibly looked any worse on the first two strikeouts? Strike three each time was an incredibly weak half-wave at the pitch.

i've never met anybody with so much criticism to offer, but so little to add to the conversation.

Don't know what nickname he would have but have you noticed he really seems afraid to be at the plate? He's standing like three or four feet away from the plate. Perhaps it's a result of getting beaned last season but his swings only seem to cover the inner third of the plate. No wonder he can't hit at all, just throw a breaking ball on the outer third and he can't hit it.

He's standing way back so he can't get jammed by the inside pitch. Amazingly enough, everyone now pitches to the outer third, which he can't possibly reach. This is nothing new for Shammy. He's been doing this for years. He's also a sucker for high heat.
