Holy crap, Sosa is coming to Baltimore
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1978241

I am happy and all but I would have prefered Delgado who I feel is the better player and better guy all around but Sosa whoa. I also think the O's should have gotten a pitcher, thats what they need but I think Sosa could do some good, I just hope he doesnt become a bust like Albert Belle did. *fingers crossed*.

2. I would have prefered Delgado still
He's younger and I like him a lot as a person too but hey if Sosa can make Balitmore competive again somewhat I am happy but we needed pitching I thought first and foremost.

I am not gonna be too boastful because I think a great pitcher would have been best but hey maybe the division may be somewhat competive again and I am happy.

10. John, he might not become an Albert Belle. He might --
-- be a Frank Robinson.

I like Sosa's chances in Baltimore. Natural turf, retro stadium. He'll be ok.
