ESPN’s Enrique Rojas, quoting the Dominican paper Hoy, writes that Sammy Sosa intends to retire after playing in the next World Baseball Classic (to be held in March ’09).
Sosa’s quotes are confusing:
"There’s something that I wish to state very clearly: I’m not looking for a job. In fact, I have told my agent that he should stop offering my services to MLB teams. I’m not retired. I remain highly focused and not begging for a contract."
I think Sosa’s point is that he is still willing to play for an MLB team, but only if they come to him.
