Sosa talks to Washington Post about returning.

link!

Sammy Sosa talked to the Post after hearing about the alleged feud with Miguel Tejada. He denied that anything was wrong between him and Miguel.

Also, he blamed his bad season on injuries and the transition to the American League, apologized for not hitting 40 home runs, said he loved the city, and said that, if Peter Angelos wants him back, he'd gladly return.

Some quotes:

"I want to tell the fans I loved playing there and that it's a beautiful city"

"I didn't have the season that I wanted to have because I changed leagues and had a lot of adjustments to make ... I know that's not an excuse."

"The only person who can decide whether they want me back is Peter Angelos ... The only one who will have the last word is Peter Angelos. That's a man I have a lot of respect for and I'm sorry that I couldn't hit the 40 home runs for Mr. Angelos. If he wants my services I have no problem coming back."

The article basically says there's no way Sosa is coming back unless it's on an incentive-laden contract with no guaranteed playing time.

SO, the question!

Say the O's could sign Sosa to practically the league minimum with some incentives, and he'd be a fourth outfielder unless he proved he could hit ... Would you take him back?

Strangely enough, I would consider it. I really don't think he has anything left in his career, but at some point isn't it almost a no-risk situation with a (very) off chance of a high reward?
