Sheffield Suspension

Postby apz » Mon Jun 18, 2007 8:00 am

With Detroit playing 6 games this week in NL parks with no DH, anyone think Sheff may drop his appeal and serve his suspension this week?

I haven't heard any updates on this issue; however, I agree that this is a reasonable scenario for how this might play out.

This is likely good news for me since I'm ahead in batting and good news for the Twins too. ;D

more details...

Sheffield's suspension cut from 3 games to 2
June 28, 2007

DETROIT (AP) -- Tigers slugger Gary Sheffield had his three-game suspension reduced to two Thursday by Major League Baseball.

Sheffield was ejected May 31 at Cleveland for arguing balls and strikes. Plate umpire Greg Gibson claimed Sheffield threw a piece of his broken bat at him as he walked away -- Sheffield and Tigers manager Jim Leyland disputed Gibson's account.

"Umpires lie, too," Sheffield said.

"It just goes to show you it wasn't true and how corrupt the umpiring system is," he said. "They can make a statement and that means it's true. And so it has to go all the way to the commissioner's office, just because it has to go to a higher power, I guess, and that means it's true."

Bob Watson, baseball's vice president in charge of discipline, spoke to Sheffield and Leyland before Detroit's 5-2 win over Texas. The Tigers DH hit his 18th home run in the victory.

"Jim and I and Gary had a long conversation before today's game and we came to this agreement," Watson said. "His side was compelling and I felt he was sincere."

Sheffield will sit out games Saturday and Sunday against Minnesota. Still, he's not happy with the ruling.

Sheffield brought up another situation -- Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca's recent two-game suspension after tossing equipment from the dugout -- when talking to Watson.

"I challenged him and asked him, 'Was my situation was worse than Paul Lo Duca's?"' Sheffield said. "He said it was the same. I didn't throw stuff on the field. When you hear reasoning like that, you know it's a joke."

No way. Gary performs when he's angry. And if Gary is yappin', he's usually angry.

Right after this conversation (which occurred right before the game), he steals a base, smacks a homer, drives in 2 and scores 2.
