Sheffield is an Angry Man
Thursday, October 26, 2006
smug sheffieldI love life. I say this not because I live a life of notable joy or enjoy significant talent, but for the seemingly limitless delight I experience upon hearing other people say stupid things. While I do garner some happiness from the stupidity of the common folk, my life feels most complete when the source of the dumbosity (and don't you dare come at me with your "that isn't a word" talk) is a celebrity or public figure of any sort.

When it comes to baseball players that I can count on for amusement every time their names appear next to quotation marks, Gary Sheffield holds a special place in my heart (right between Barry Bonds and Pedro Martinez). Sheff's absurd reactions to things that would generally illicit a calm or even positive response from someone with normal brain function are the driving force behind his reputation as a volatile teammate and the main reason I love him. Yesterday the Yankees let Sheff know that they have decided to pick up the $13 million option on his contract for the 2007 season, a move Sheff had been pushing for since the end of the 2005 season. Apparently, after being forced to play first base (poorly) in the ALDS, Sheff has changed his tune, telling USA Today that he didn't want the Yankees to pick up the contract after all - no, he suddenly preferred to become a free agent in hopes of picking up a 3-year contract:

"This will not work, this will not work at all. I don't want to play first base a year for them. I will not do that. I don't know what they're (Yankees) going to do. Maybe they picked it up just to trade me. If they do that, if I just (go) to a team for one year, there's going to be a problem."

Yes, how dare they pick up an option on a contract you signed? Too bad you didn't include a no-trade clause in there.

I love life.

    It's a good thing that the Yankees won't trade him to Boston or the Mets, because I have a feeling the guy is going to be motivated next year by this. But Sheff seems like one of those guys who just hates everyone, as opposed to Bonds, who seems to want everyone to hate him.

    Here's to wondering if we'll get some video where Sheff says "Brian Cashman does not like black people" in a Kanye West like tone

    At least he's going to the World Series... if he buys a ticket like everyone else.

    Yeah, Sheffield seems like a whiner to me. He should be happy he has a job at all. He could be mopping floors at K-Mart and grumbling about how he was hot-shit in high school when it came to baseball.

    Very unappreciative.

    I agree with joshua xalpharis comments. Sheff needs some cheese with that whine.

    Cashman should trade Sheffield and Eric Duncan to the Devil Rays for Carl Crawford and Dioner Navarro. Then try to trade either Matsui or Abreu to get Crawford into the OF. If they can't trade one of them, Matsui will just have to DH and learn to play first.

    "Cashman should trade Sheffield and Eric Duncan to the Devil Rays for Carl Crawford and Dioner Navarro."

    Because this will OBVIOUSLY happen since Carl Crawford has a nice and manageable contract and the Devil Rays have an uber prospect ready to take over for Navarro at catcher and Eric Duncan has proven himself to be a top 50 prospect. Oh wait, those last two things are false. And furthermore, if Tampa trades Crawford, they're going out of the division and to someone who can give them pitching. It's nice to dream, but try and be more realistic when you want to tell others about your trade ideas
