For Whom the Sheff Tolls

You didn’t think we were going to let our little scoop go at one post did you? Not a chance. Yesterday we brought you the news that our combative (and soon to be ex) rightfielder, Gary Sheffield, will be sending another of his patented stinging liners into the Yankee dugout, but this in the form of a tell all book on his time in the pinstripes. Surprised? Don’t be; this isn’t even Sheff’s first book. (It’s a good bet he’s the only member of PEN with 400 homers.) Which is not to say he couldn’t use a bit of help picking out a title for the new tome. A few suggestions from the staff here at YFSF:

The God Delusion
Team of Rivals
The Affluent Society
The End of the Affair
The Sheff and the Fury
I Don’t Like You
Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, and How Baseball Got Big
The World Is Flat—No Seriously, And There Were No Dinosaurs Either
(with Carl Everett)

Other ideas? We’re sure they’d be welcome.
