    In 2007 Sammy Sosa received a base salary of $500 thousand dollars from the Texas Rangers, and in 114 games (87 starts as DH) he produced 21 HRs 92 RBI and a .252 avg.

    Sammy Sosa wants to play in the majors next year, but only if a team pays him $7 million dollars.

    Dionisio Soldevila (AP) reported that Sosa didn't see a lot of action after the All-Star game. "It was devastating when manager Ron Washington called me into his office and told me they were going to cut back my playing time," [Sosa] said. "My reaction was to go home and quit."

    That's our Sammy.

    21 dings 114 RBI in half a season batting .252? Over the wall or not at all I guess.

    Reminds you a bit of Dave Kingman numbers....BTW, Kingman is the only elegible player with 400+ HR's who is not in the HOF.
