List of Sammy Sosa quotes.

To tell the truth, I never think about a homer. I'm just thinking of the situation and what I've got to do when I go to the plate.


Everyone knows that what happened to me is great, but at the other side I care about winning. I care about the team and the situation right now.


When you're in the middle of a pennant race, you can't go up there thinking about home runs.
