Sheff Tells All

A little birdy has given YFSF the exclusive tip that the top Sheff has written a juicy little expose of his soon-to-be-former mates, to be published by a prominent house. No word on the release date, but our souce tells us Gary does not paint a pretty picture of life in the Bronx these last three years. The opinionated slugger apparently doesn’t think too highly of some his teammates and he’s now ready to tell us all why.

  • Ball Four anyone?
    Sheffield go call up Jim Bouton and see how life is being a pariah for a bit

  • As if Sheff wasn’t somewhat of a pariah before this anyway.

  • Reason # 32435984750470293874029387 that I would never want this punk ass bitch on the Red Sox.

  • …nick, is this for real?…if so, it’s actually kind of funny, in a sick, twisted, ironic kind of way…here’s “mr. leave me alone, i don’t want to be bothered”, hanging out his teammates dirty laundry…and, now i’m glad he’s going…sf’s, if you have any pull with your team’s management, advise them to stay away from this guy…he apparently never did grow up…

  • dc, according to the source, it’s real.

  • Not surprising in the least.
    See, this is another reason why I wonder how in the world someone would want to give up any real value for a guy who is such a pain in the neck. Who cares if he can still take a vicious swing when you have to deal with this sort of stuff all the time?

  • Edit: (Obviously, I realize some people could say similar things about Manny, but “Manny being Manny” is nothing like “Sheff being Sheff.”)

  • mouse, your disclaimer wasn’t necessary…nobody should call you on manny v. sheffield…i’ve made some rather benign comments on this site about manny’s idiosyncrasies, while ever mindful of his immense talent, and i’ve been convinced that his quirkiness has had no adverse affect on his teammates…he’s tolerable, even likeable…sheffield, on the other hand, is a lesser talent who, with his latest round of trantrums and [alleged] backstabbing, is beginning to sound a lot like the bad apple i’ve been hearing about, but was reluctant to believe…he’s not likable…

  • I’ve always said, and it might be extreme in both cases, but if there were no baseball, Sheffield might be in jail, and Manny would be working the night shift at Burger King while eating fruit loops and watching cartoons during the day.

  • i’ve always maintained that if sheff wasn’t playing baseball, his would be the last face you see if you owed money to the mob.
    you’d feel a tire iron smack into your back, you’d roll over, and there’d be an angry sheff, shouting “where’s the money m-f-er?!?!?”
