"I feel like I did when I was a rookie. I have a lot of spirit and a desire to return. I think I can play three or four more years in the form I am now...I want the chance and I believe one is going to appear. This time I will accept an offer like the one with the Nationals because I want to get back to the majors."

The Sammy Sosa watch is on: Will Jimbo make him another offer?
The Juicy details -- Disgraced former slugger attempting another comeback, claims he's had "calls" from interested teams, hints that he'd accept an offer like the one he rejected from the Nationals last season.
We say: offer him a Jim Bowden Special: Minor League Contract with an invite to Spring Training, $850,000 if he makes the Opening Day roster, load it up with incentives, call Miguel Tejada for some of those vitamin B-12 shots...
