I'd read somewhere that the Yanks might pick up Sheff's option and then just trade him. Just a rumor, and I don't even remember where I read it. It was a week or two ago.


I read that as well, shortly after I posted it. It somewhat makes sense but is a gamble. There should be some teams that will take a ST chance on him for $13M for 1 season. If not, they have a very expensive DH. :-°


Is he still working with Mattingly at 1st? Thats the best place for him IMO.

I don't know how we can say that for sure since he hasn't played the position before.

He came up a SS/3B.

He's old now, but as Sheffield said (paraphrased) "If he (Giambi) can play 1st, I sure can"

I know that he came up as an IF but that doesn't mean that he can be a solid 1B, especially at this age.
