Saw this quote and wasn't sure if it was meant as a having his number retired type thing or as a player.

"I had a good conversation with [club President] John McDonough in spring training, and, definitely, I will come back to Chicago. Definitely, they're going to open the door for me."Those were his comments in the Trib today.

I take that as coming back to the organization in some manner after he retired from the game.

Same here, although nothing would shock me with that carnival up north.

Yeah Sammy, they'll open the door for you. And then make sure it hits you square in the ass on the way out.

Love the pickoff at first tonight too. Nice work! :redneck

He still thinks he's the star of the show "Everybody Loves Sammy". Someone ought to tell him there's a new show: "Everyone Hates 'Roids".

The mental picture that came to mind with this is Sammy standing outside under the main gates and greeting fans with that big goofy smile on his face... I don't know why but that's what I thought of and it's quite funny:D:

I'm assuming he meant like a 1 day contract then retire.

...Sosa forever will be linked with St. Louis' Mark McGwire for their historic home run battle in 1998...

"We did save baseball in 1998," Sosa said. "We did the best we could and everybody was happy. But after that, I don't have control about what happened. But we did what we were supposed to do: play baseball the way we play."

Brian Paruch from the snore predicted the other day that "we're only a few years away from enjoying a Sammy Sosa Day at Wrigley".

He's probably right... I bet the tide turns and they embrace him once again. All we need is someone to bring back this one...
