I just C&P'd this from Yahoo's article about the Vaz deal:

In other Yankees news, Gary Sheffield took a physical Thursday, a step toward completing a $39 million, three-year deal, which will include about $15 million of deferred money.

Also, the Yankees have begun discussions that likely will lead to the departure of Gordon Blakeley, their senior vice president of baseball operations, who is based in Tampa, Fla. Mark Newman, Blakeley's predecessor, probably will reclaim his old job.


Deferred money? Did anyone else hear about this?

I've read a couple of articles that said part of his salary would be deferred. I didn't realize that it would be $15 million though.

My understanding is the contract calls for Gary to stay with the organization after he retires too ... I read it somewhere today. If I stumble upon it again I'll post it... :-)

It's in the article above, but it says a job with the organization would be offered. Not that he has to take it. :-)

The Braves apparently plan to file a grievance against the Yankees, believing that they've already in fact agreed to terms with Sheffield. The Braves might have a case, but the fact that they weren't certain enough that a deal was done to actually offer arbitration to Sheffield could work against them.


This makes no sense, filing a grievence gets you what? a fine? ... to George? where the hell is the emotiocon for "Whoopdee" .... oh that'll teach 'em .... Looks like ATL bought into the Cashmen ploy too ... :-t

I simple cannot believe that they didn't at least offer arbitration ...

They should've held a press conference just to announce that they are officially in agreement with Boston in that the Yankees are indeed the "Evil Empire."

Allright I understand it now ....
Last year, the Braves offered Greg Maddux salary arbitration, and Maddux, unexpectedly accepted, Remember?
He received $14.75 million .. an Arbitration record, and that forced the Braves to ship Millwood to the Phillies in a cost-cutting move last winter, They were worried Gary might do the same thing ...

True, but in light of the expected Yankee signing, you'd think that they'd offer him arbitration to get the picks. Odd, really.
I'm back. Sorta.
