Sosa may be back

The Texas Rangers have offered Sammy Sosa a minor league contract and invitation to spring training, where the veteran slugger would have the chance to make the major league club. "This is about giving a second chance to a guy who did a lot for the game, and who wants an opportunity to prove he can contribute. We're not setting expectations, and he's not asking for anything other than a chance to compete." Texas general manager Jon Daniels said in an e-mail to "Sammy seems hungry and somewhat humbled by the last two years,''

The only hungrier person to sign a minor league deal this month is that fat drunk Sidney Ponson. If Ponson isn’t giving up grand slams on the diamond, he’s eating them at Denny’s.
