In case you thought Sammy Sosa was out of baseball for good, and you were really broken up about that, well, there's hope. Sosa told a radio station in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday that he is not retired, and would resume his major-league career for the right offer. That, according to ESPN.

"I'm not retired. I'm young and happy," the Dominican told the station in Santo Domingo.

Orioles fans may not be thrilled with the news: Sosa hit.221 with 14 homers and 45 RBI in 102 games for Baltimore in 2005. But hey, if Sammy times it right, he'll be just in time to replace Barry Bonds as the target of federal investigators.
