SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -- Sammy Sosa wants to play in the majors next year, provided a team offers him a contract for at least $7 million.

He will be lucky to get a major league contract, hell even 700k then 7 million

Well, I hope he enjoys his retirement then.

He must be trying to replace the money from the plastic bag he lost. Whatever the reason, he won't be playing next year, because no one will offer him that much money to strike out three times each game.

It's about respect.

21 HRs, 92 RBIs ain't enough these days Sosa!

He's worth the 7 million from a marketing stand-point, no doubt.

You gotta love 112 strikeouts to 412 at-bats aka 3.6 K/AB, so you were all but guaranteed a strikeout per day from Sosa... so there's a promotion already.

I didn't think I'd need teal.

He basically had the same year offensively as Josh Fields, except Fields whiffed even more. That's not worth $7 million. And its scary how a few homers and little else get White Sox fans excited over a prospect.

When spread out to 574 ABs, he's on pace for 35 HRs and 101 RBIs. Not sure why you're upset about that. Strikeouts are a byproduct of a power hitter (except for Pujols). Deal with it.

But back to Sosa. My point was that for someone who drove in 92 runs, despite being benched for much of the final two months, he does kind of deserve a contract in the $7 million range.

*****, Fields over a full season projected to 33 homers and 100+ rbis out of the 2 hole. Imagine what that could be out of the 3 or 4, he might have drove in 100 straight up without needing a full season. Yes, does he need to get that average up 20 points to be a real star? for sure. Does he need to K less? you betcha. Does he have the potential to be the BEST hitter on this team? 100%.

Give me a rookie who we should be more excited over then Josh (or 2nd year guy). Hes been the only hitter in a long long time to come up from our system and prove he belongs here.

For 7 million? Sure it is. The market has gone insane. 7 million is the new 2.5 million.

Sammy say's that if he doesn't get 7 mil. God is going to call him home.

He looked a bit peaked and slim in his Baltimore bust year of 2005, then came back as big as ever in 2007. Do you think he found something legal or undetectable?

Sosa still kills LHP, and would have great value as a platoon player at DH or even LF, perhaps in the NL where he could also pinch-hit. He's worthless against righties, however, and wouldn't be worth more than $2 million as a part-time player. I think greed, ego, and desire to pad his career stats will prevent him from realizing this, and he'll be done with baseball for good.
