Sammy Sosa the next Twins DH???

18 posts in this topic

I would take him in a heartbeat but I doubt this will happen. This was from Yahoo.com

Jul 17 T.R. Sullivan, of Rangers.MLB.com, reports the Minnesota Twins are among the teams that could be interested in acquiring Texas Rangers DH Sammy Sosa before the July 31 trade deadline. The Twins this year have had low production from the designated hitter position; as of July 14, the Twins have gotten only three home runs and 38 RBI from the designated hitter spot this season. However, the team has thus far shown no interest in acquiring Sosa

It will never happen, first we wouldnt pay him what he wants, second, we wouldnt give up what it would take to get him, third he wouldnt come here anyway!

Sounds good to me....

Lew Ford or Sammy Sosa....hmmmmmmmm...

Rondell White or Sammy Sosa....hmmmmmmm....

Jeff Cirillo or Sammy Sosa...hmmmmmmmm.... even if Sammy Sosa strikes out every other at bat it is still an improvement, but it will never happen! We are just gonna wait for Rondell to come back healthy:)

Sosa make what 500k a year and how much are we paying Rondell White. I think we can afford 500k for the rest of the year.

You forgot to add Tyner to that list.

It would be nice! I just dont see it happening, I dont remember the twins ever getting any big name in the middle of the season, unless they were totally washed up.

Dreamin. I cannot believe that the owners would ever pony up the kind of money it would take to sign Sosa.

It would be great though.

I think this says it all. I'd like to see it happen, but its not Terry Ryan's style.

Seen the 500k number out there in a story about steals for this season. I don't see him being let go 500k is nothing today in baseball and I don't see the Twins giving up anything for him. Just about anyone with a heart beat could do as well as the Twins have in the DH this year.

Latest unsubstantiated rumor I heard was that the Twins were shopping Dmitri Young...he would be a nice addition to the middle of a suddenly anemic lineup.

It sounds like the Nats want Slowey...

it would be nice to get a monster bat in the line up for the twins as they make a run for the playoffs.

Sammy or Young would be a great fit. I still think they screwed up when they didnt get soriano

Sosa's numbers sure took a dive after he quit juicing... Current BA is just .239 with a mere 14 homeruns. No thanks. The Twins dont need him...

When paired with that batting average not really. I would think that there may be better options for them. Most people hear the name Sosa and instanly think of huge numbers and superstar status. I dont think the Twins need to stoop to the level of a player(cheater)like Sosa. Maybe we should try to get Bonds too?

I would take him in our left field all day and twice on sunday. If he were to help the Twins win a WS, I say go for it. Remember- the Twins used to turn on the fans in the OF when the opponents came to bat to help blow the ball back in, is that cheating?

I think that would be a great trade, we have young guns in garza, and liriano for next year.
