Nationals general manager Jim Bowden said Tuesday the team has offered Sosa a major-league contract and is waiting to see if the seven-time All-Star accepts it. The deal is believed to be for only one year and laden with incentives.

It does not guarantee Sosa a spot on the team and the Nationals would only have to pay a 30-day contract termination fee if Sosa does not make the Opening Day roster.



Good luck buddy!

He'll make the most money this year by going back to the Dominican and looking for that Sack of bills he "lost" down there a few years ago!

If he does hit 600, there ought to be a giant asterisk next to his name. (just for the 'suspected' steroid use. Not to mention the corked bat)

The Nats investing in Soso... guess DC isn't looking for a championship any time soon.

Since they have no owner, they can't sign anyone that wants more than league minimum...well, not league minimum, but you get the idea. MLB won't approve any big salaries. So, I guess in that light, it makes sense that they'd be the only team willing to take a flier on Sosa.

Ol' No. 2

Good luck buddy!Pfft. No guarantee of making the roster. They can cut him loose with a 30-day payoff. In reality, this isn't much more than a NRI.

He won't stick. Except for 380 at-bats with Baltimore, he hasn't been able to win a major league job since we traded him.

MLB's final way of sticking it to DC :redneck

Don't expect to see Shammy playing ball in the Capital any time soon...

So is this Sammy Sosa, or is this another one of those threads where the person shares a lastname with someone, and you fool everybody into thinking it's Sammy Sosa when, in fact, it is like "Bill Sosa" or something?
:tongue:

He's the end of the line. If he hit 221 in Baltimore as a DH, I don't expect him to be any better in Washington playing in the field. Sosa just want to get to the 600 homer mark.

DC is a good place for Sammy. He won't have to travel far to testify in front of congress.

That makes Washington the most dysfunctional team in MLB. Sosa, Royce the Choice, Jose Guillen.........Frank Robinson is going to be in the nut house before the all star break.

If anyone can handle these nutcases, it's him. He should get a raise, though.

RFK is a bad stadium for hitting HR's. I bet Sosa is just begging Colorado to sign him.

You forgot Alfonso Soriano, who is one of the biggest whiners in the game.
