Since the Sammy Sosa story broke, everyone has been going insane with reactions and analysis of “the trade”. What bugs me is that this trade has not even been finished yet. People are giving their opinions on a trade that could end up turning out like the first Randy Johnson deal. There is, at this point, a lot of loose ends that still need to be tied. For example, what if Sosa’s back acts up and he fails the physical? What if for some ungodly reason he doesn’t waive his no trade clause? What if for some reason the Orioles cannot satisfy Sosa’s financial wishes? At this point, until I see it in the MLB transactions section as a done deal, I am still holding my breath. You guys should do the same.
