On a related note, Sheffield said:
"My goal is to get a big contract for next season," Sheffieldsaid. "Certainly, I don't want to come back under-paid, where I'm not paid to what I'm capable of. I'm going to do my best to come back and play up to my capabilities, or even more, when that happens is up to the Boss." Sheffield indicated that he may be ready to start baseball activities again in about six weeks, or just as soon as the swelling in his head comes down.
