According to Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune, Sammy Sosa is considering retirement if he doesn’t get an offer soon. Sosa passed the 600 HR plateau last year, so there’s no statistical reason to hang around.
Sosa drove in 92 runs in 114 games in his comeback season for the Rangers, but struggled against right-handed pitching. Apparently he has looking for regular playing time and/or decent money to play in ’08; the Royals passed on his offer to play for them. Ken Rosenthal noted back in February that the 2013 Hall of Fame voting could be mighty interesting.
