Yes, I understand that Sosa’s deal is of the low-risk minor league type. You know what, though? I stopped when I saw a yellow light the other day instead of speeding straight through it. It was a low-risk move. Why don’t you write an article about me?
It may not be the most accurate analogy, but it makes my point. We make low-risk, high-reward moves everyday, but few are met with the hype of Sammy. This is not 1998. Sammy has proven he was in a severe decline, and that was before he took a year off. The odds are greatly against this working out for the Rangers.
Don’t worry, though. Ron Washington plans to bat him fifth.
