the brief article linked at BaseballGeeks, it appears that the only thing in common that this
deal had with Frank Thomas’ deal with Oakland was the signing price.
Were the terms the same as the Thomas deal, the article says Sosa would
that the incentives weren’t there, so I don’t blame Sosa for not
signing. What if he has this stellar season, helps the Nationals, and
is stuck with the paltry $500,000?
