Better News on the Sosa Front

Bill Ladson has the scoop and it looks like Sosa's not going to be coming. His source, let's call him JB, says they won't give up prospects for him and they won't take him unless the Cubs pay him. If they're expecting the Cubs to pay the entire salary, JB is a bit wacky. I'm sure the Nats would have to chip in some money.

The other good note from the story:
Meanwhile, the Nationals are trying to sign right-hander Esteban Loaiza to a one-year deal. The Nationals have $6 million to spend, but are not willing to spend that kind of money on Loazia.



  • I think every Sosa rumor we've ever heard has just been Bowden making publicity for himself. Both go-rounds with this story have involved Bodes essentially saying, "Yeah, we'd take Sosa if it didn't cost us anything." Well, sure, but that doesn't count as pursuit. He just wants something to talk to Gammons about.
