Selfish Sheff Screws Junkees

My goodness, how selfish can these Junkees get? Once again, Gary Sheffield has proven why he's one of the biggest jerks in the game. The loser here is not the Schmets, who can presumably get more offense elsewhere; it's the Junkees.

Gary Sheffield has essentially made himself untradeable. And when you think about it, the Yanks don't have too many other guys as trade bait. Nobody wants Bernie, Brown, or Giambi. Pavano and Moose are overpriced. Posada is an aging, expensive catcher. The Junkees can't afford to lose Shemp. And even Cano may be untouchable, considering that the alternatives at second are No-Mack and Rey Sanchez. The only options are the few prospects in the Junkees' system.

So Sheffield has just made it much harder for the Yanks to get a much-needed centerfielder. So next time Bernie boots one, the fans oughta boo Sheffield.

I know Sheff's put up some impressive numbers, but after all this, the Yanks clearly screwed up in not going for Vlad Guerrero. And now they're stuck with Sheff.

I think that the Yankees turned down the trade before Sheffield opened his mouth about it. Not that I like Gary Sheffield, he's one of my least favorite players in the league, but I don't think that the Yanks were going to trade him given what they were offered from the Mets.

Maybe if they were offered a pitcher, Sheff would be gone ... but who knows. I wouldn't mind seeing Sheffield elsewhere.
