Baseball: How To Know When Your Resume Needs Updating

FoxSports: Gary Sheffield knows who leads the New York Yankees, and it apparently isn’t Derek Jeter or Alex Rodriguez. Sheffield all but appointed himself the Yankees’ most valuable player in an interview with New York magazine, accusing reporters of distorting the truth and ruining team chemistry. […] Sheffield was batting .302 this season entering Friday night’s game against Toronto, a percentage point behind Jeter and well behind Rodriguez’s team-leading .316. Rodriguez also leads in home runs (30) and RBIs (85). Sheffield’s 21 homers and 81 RBIs are tied for second in both categories. […] “It happens because you’re white and I’m black,” Sheffield said. “My interpretation of things is different. You don’t see it the way I see it. You write how you understand it, how you would articulate it, not how I, as a black man, would articulate it.”

Seeya, Gary! Enjoyed the time we had together, but I’m betting you’ll be banished to Colorado for talking to the press like this. In spite of who is the current Captain, George leads the Yankees and I’m betting he’s not going to be proud of you for this crap. I haven’t seen the likes of this since the Bronx Zoo of the mid 70’s.

Can’t say I’m glad to see it coming back to that again…

  1. Could not agree more with you Randy. He must be bellyaching because he probably requested a contract extension and was turned down. He also probably knows the Yankees won’t pick up his option after next year. Sheffield has complained everywhere he’s played because everybody is against him (yeah right). Maybe Sheffield is covering for Palmeiro by trying to take the sports headlines?

    On Palmeiro:

    Frank Robinson said that the records of the steroid users should be wiped out completely. Palmeiro hit 95 homeruns in 3,300 at bats before Canseco, then he hit 456 homeruns in his next 7,000 at bats after Canseco joined him on the Texas Rangers as his steriod provider, I mean as his teammate.

  2. Cyrus hit that one on the head. He’s trying to fight fire with fire, and he’s losing horribly. I’m not quite sure who’s in the market for an aging outfielder with an awful sense of PR.
