Sammy Sosa the next Twins DH???

Recommended Posts

mnwild

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.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
