Well, Kansas City is only 23 games out of the wild card, so they still have a chance...

Sheff slaps
Yanks, Jeter
BY MICHAEL O'KEEFFE
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Friday, August 5th, 2005

Gary Sheffield has news for Yankee fans: Derek Jeter ain't the leader of this pack. "I know who the leader is on the team," Sheffield said in an explosive New York magazine interview set to hit newsstands Monday.

"I ain't going to say who it is, but I know who it is. I know who the team feeds off. I know who the opposing team comes in knowing they have to defend to stop the Yankees."

Sheffield, who has a reputation for being prickly and outspoken, doesn't stop there.

The 17-year veteran blasts the media for hyping team captain Jeter and third baseman Alex Rodriguez over every other player on the team - and says the Yankees lack family values, chemistry and trust. "Why shouldn't I tell the truth?" Sheffield told writer Stephen Rodrick. "I ain't trying to get no Pepsi commercial."

Sheffield never mentions Jeter and A-Rod by name, but he told New York the media portrays the two superstars "in a positive light and everyone else is garbage."

He says other players look at the Yankees as a first-class organization, but he believes the team lacks respect for family.

"It's not a family-oriented team. In L.A., wives can fly on the plane; with the Yankees they can't," the former Dodger said. "With other teams, the wives always have functions to bring them together. Not here."

New York's media crush, he contends, damages whatever chemistry the team might have. "This is the first team I've been on where no one sits at their locker," he said.

"It's where you build your chemistry from, how you get to know each other, just talking about life. I'm used to having six chairs around me, but here if there are six chairs, then there's going to be 20 reporters around me."

Sheffield, 36, also concedes he's not willing to pull a Jeter and dive into the stands after a ball. "That's not happening. I tore up my shoulder, I tore up a knee. I'm not doing that again," he said.

The All-Star with the gunslinger eyes also told New York he was insulted when general manager Brian Cashman offered him a two-year, $18 million contract before last season. He ended up signing a three-year, $39 million deal.

"I just came off 39 home runs and 132 RBIs and you ain't got nobody on your team that can put up those numbers, and you ain't gonna get anyone who is going to," he said. "But George [Steinbrenner] asked me not to take it as an insult and kept pursuing me. I said, 'Fine, I don't have to speak to anyone in the organization to still do my job.'"

"Pulling a Jeter"?? Gay jokes aside, how the hell do they figure he dove into the stands after a ball? He fell into the stands after he cought the ball in fair territory!

You got a point there. I wouldn't suggest a Red Sox try it though; they might run into Manny Ramirez.

Let's see if John Rodriguez can make it through the weekend w/ out making bone-headed decision on the base paths. Cards fans are starting to realize why the dumbass was in the minors for eight years.

As long as he keeps putting up numbers, Sheffield can say whatever he wants IMO.

Could be worse, he could be an idiot baserunner and also not hit the ball....AKA Ryan Klesko.

You obviously have no future as a sports talk show host in Boston.

I think I agree with the 'media' on this one . . .



Hopefully the White Sox can beat up on a sub .500 team (at home) this weekend. Though Carl Everett is out for a few days with a strained groin (from some lovely baserunning). Guillen said he may put Podsednik in the DH spot. This might be a good idea as it may let Pods recharge on the bench as it seems he's close to being out of gas after the first 4 months of the season.

39 HR and 132 RBI's...all part of the Cream and Clear plan. What an ass.

Apparently he hasn't been watching A-Rod's stats.

According to some rumblings in the baseball community, there are rumors of another big name baseball player that is going to be suspended for violating the substance abuse policy for steroids. No word yet who and when, but several players have heard that it will come as early as next week. Wonder who it will be.

Could it be David Eckstein? If it's Brian Roberts, I'd die laughing.

I'll throw a name out there: Jeff Bagwell. He's long been suspected despite the fact that his production and weight have fallen, but he's been unable to lift consistently for a couple of years. Plus, he chooses to finally correct his shoulder problem in May, which is the month that the latest suspensions seem to have come from. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but that one, sadly, wouldn't surprise me.

Hopefully it's Cristian Guzman so the MLB will say "you know what, maybe steroids don't really help your performance" and allow them into the game again.

Long live the 550 foot home run!

Wow so Jason is going out with a bang huh? He has been tested once, but many say he has been tested more than that. Only reason to test more than once (re: CBA) is if something is wrong. I doubt it though.

That's one possible name. I just heard it on the radio from the local guys, but they had heard from Dbacks players that the ax was about to fall on someone soon. Hopefully it's true and we'll find otu soon.

C'mon, that's splitting hairs from a yankee hater (and this is coming from a yankee hater). There was no way to catch that ball without ending up in the stands. So what if it was caught a split second before he hit the rail and went over. He didn't fall into the stands, he ran head first into them while tracking a ball, give the gay little fucker some credit. And it wasn't in fair territory, it was in foul territory.

What I want to know is this: if Jeter isn't the one leading that pack, and Sheff doesn't seem to say it is him, so who is it? Bernie? Jorge? Moose?
