10 thoughts on “Poor Gary”

  1. I can’t think of another team that would be eager to pay Gary Sheffield $13 million next season, so if the Yankees pick up his option to use him as trade bait, that seems like a really bad idea.

  2. The Yankees treat their purchases like Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield) put into his purchases in the pro shop during Caddyshack —
    “Give me half a dozen of the Vulcan D-tens…and set my friend up with the whole schmear. You know, clubs, bags, shoes ..gloves, shirt, pants. Orange balls! I’ll have a box of those…and give me a box of those naked-lady tees.”
    But even Al Czervik knew not to buy the hat. Sheffield is the hat, with no free bowl of soup.

  3. At todays prices $13 mil for a healthy Sheff is a bargin. The question is that now that the ‘roids are out of his system will he stay healthy. History says no.

  4. How bad a guy do you have to be to literally have no one want you? Sheff is going to end up with 500+HRs, prior to last year his past 3 season totals include 109 HRs, 376 RBIs, .300+BA, .400ish OBP, .550ish slugging and he has not struck out more than he has walked since 1993 despite that cut he takes. How much of a steroid doing locker room cancer are you when you have HOF numbers, can still hit and you are probably going to be looked at by middle-of-the-road/slightly desperate teams only.
    This being said who would take Bonds who likely will leave SF as there is little likelihood they will offer him any more than half of what he makes now?

  5. Sheffield is still a good hitter, but he’s a bad injury risk, a mediocre outfielder, not a great guy in the locker room, and is not only going to be guaranteed $13 million, he’s likely to demand more to report if traded. I’d pass.

  6. I think the O’s will make a run at Bonds. And I think the Red Sox will sign Jeff “Freaking” Suppan.
