I mean it is a HUGE milestone...

he hit numbers 593 and 594 today

he is hitting just .239 but the power is clearly there with 6 homers this season

also, he homered in his 44th ballpark today, breaking Fred McGriff's and Ken Griffey Jr's record

LO. I was just going to post something about this.

And maybe bumping some thread where he was declared as done.

He seems to be heating up as of late. 18 RBIs isn't shabby either. So he is hitting with people on the base pads

Nice to see Sammy on a tear again. I love seeing him hit balls out of the park. I was doubtful at the start of the season, but it he looks like he's going to pass 600 and then some. :D

marlins should have got him. this power wouldve helped. personally, id rather see sammy sosa out there then joe borchard. also, wouldve brought people to the ballpark. maybe not 30,000 but history brings people in, and in the marlins stadium...you couldve seen the difference.

agreed.

it would've been a good baseball move and a good business one.

this quest is a good story. another good tid-bit in this is the fact that Sosa will play in Orlando this year. Ive been campaigning for a baseball team to be put in one of the most visited cities in America but I know its far fetched. anyway this will certainly be a great story is Sosa comes to town with 599 and hits 600 in a city without a MLB stadium. Im hoping for it, hes 5 away and has 15 games in between. Even if he comes with 597 Ill be at all the games against the Rays.

He just hit 598. . . Way to go Sammy. Good off season move for the Rangers, and so far paying off

wow only two homers away. I hope he hits #600 at home, that'd be neat.

I think hes on a 6 day road trip before coming home for 6 so we'll see.

if he goes ice cold for 15 games, he has the cubs come in...rub in face?

i know its not really a rub in the face but still nice to hit it against a team that gave up on ya.

sosa will get it and i just wish it were in a marlins uni.

oh well...700?

I've been onboard with Sammy hitting over 600 all along. I'm not sure he has enough in the tank for 700, though. 100 HR's is a LOT of baseball. You think he has 3 power years left in the tank?

I think 700 is a major stretch. If he didnt do terrible in 2005 (hit just 14 homers) and retire in 2006, he might have a good chance to get to 700.

I just checked on espn and he is projected to hit 39 homers and 140 rbi this season! I dont think he keeps it up but he has been very impressive thus far.

best bargain of the season so far?

I know there are others with better numbers but the Sammy show is at full force.

my gut feeling is that he hits 25 this year, maybe 30. . . and could have another 20-25 hr season, and that's it
