Sosa Being Benched

Thursday, August 2, 2007

After failing to trade Sammy Sosa, the Rangers have let him know that his playing time is about to be greatly reduced. "They have a couple young kids they want to see. I don't have a problem with that." Sosa has 16HR and 70 RBIs but his average is .239 and below .200 in the last 2 weeks. At 38, Sosa may have a little time left if he can find a home next season. Otherwise, this could be the end for his playing days. Give him credit for taking the news well, at least publicly. He's come a long way since refusing to move down in the lineup for Dusty Baker in his days as a Cub.
