It's a fair point. I love Sheff, always have been a fan (Hey, at least he's not as big a dick as Barry Bonds.)... but sweet zombie Jesus I hate it when they gripe over their millions. I want millions, give me your money if you want to sit and sacrifice it!
I don't think this is fair. You can't knock on Sheffield b/c he makes 13 million. He's earned his market value through hard work and training. Also, if people around him are making the same type of money, would you be happy if you deferred a crapload of money to work some place then found out they wanted to sell you to another place?
Sheff obviously is also responsilbe by not getting a no-trade clause in his contract when he deferred the money to sign with the Yanks. Now he has to deal with the possibility of getting traded. But you guys can't sit here and complain about how much money he makes.
