Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

I could care less if he goes to Boston, I honestly don't think they'll be a serious threat in the division the next couple years unless they make some serious changes.

Plus Sheff hits so many line drives to LF, half of his dingers at the Stadium would be singles at Fenway.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

Sheff ain't happy about it, no shocker though.........


NEW YORK -- Gary Sheffield was told Wednesday that the New York Yankees will pick up his $13 million option for next season, according to a newspaper report.

Sheffield said he was hoping to test the free-agent market and get another three-year contract, USA Today said in a story on its Web site.

"This will not work, this will not work at all," Sheffield told the newspaper. "I don't want to play first base a year for them. I will not do that."

Sheffield, sidelined from May 29 to Sept. 22 with an injured left wrist that required surgery, hit .298 with six homers and 25 RBIs in 39 games this season. He played first base for the first time in his major league career after he returned in September.

"I don't know what they're [Yankees] going to do," Sheffield said. "Maybe they picked it up just to trade me. If they do that, if I just [go] to a team for one year, there's going to be a problem."

A message was left by The Associated Press seeking comment from Sheffield's agent, Rufus Williams.

It's possible the Yankees are positioning themselves to trade Sheffield, as several teams are reportedly interested in a player of his type. The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that at least a half-dozen teams -- the Angels, Orioles, Cubs, Giants, Astros and Rangers -- are in the market for a power-hitting corner outfielder, and that doesn't include the Red Sox and Mets, who could also use the help. The Yankees can now prevent Sheffield from going to such rivals without getting anything in return.

One GM reportedly called Yankees GM Brian Cashman last week about Sheffield. "To be honest," he said, "I was kind of put off, leaving me to believe he's got at least a couple of teams really pushing him hard [for Sheffield]."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.




I really don't think he should be complaining, he's getting $13 million for one year and if he signs a new 3-year deal somewhere else I doubt it will net him $13mil for the entire three years.

I'd be happy if we got a #3 starter for him.

Don Mattingly is the new bench coach, according to newsday.

That would seem to pave the way for him to be the next Yankees manager after this year, but there are also rumors that Girardi is going to take a year off, and might come back to YES, so he could be available for 2008 as well.

I can't complain with either becoming the next manager.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

No surprise here, I think most people felt it would be Donnie's job if he wanted it.

It's interesting though about Girardi. I think he was to be the next manager he probably would have taken the bench job when Maz was fired.
