They interviewed Shef and of course the issue of the trade came up and he basically said whoever trades for me is going to have to compensate me to go to their team or I'm going to make things very difficult for everyone. By saying this it was put up a sign that he will not make it easy for the Yanks to trade and any team interested was served notice that they will have to give me $$$ to go to them.
George was really stupid not to listen to Micheals and pass on Shef. His reputation has a flaming A$$h0_E is really bearing his head.
Some other tidbits from Gary's mouth to his A$$ or facts previously unknown came to surface.
Shef does not like Giambi
Shef claimed that he made "compensations" to come to the Yanks about 4.5 million worth and if he's traded he wants that money.
Shef said...Teams always want the extra things other than hitting and fielding and if they want me to do all the other things well they have to pay me for that I'm not stupid. this is all buisiness.
I'm getting paid less than other guys around here who are not producing. I don;t see these guys deferring money or giving money back. Why am I the one making compensations? It was taken and adknowledge that Shef was making reference to Giambi who I didn;t know he hated. MAd Dog said he was also referring to Brown
however he is friends with him so SHef stopped short of going to far into names and details of who he was referring to.
It was acknowledged after the intrview that a Shef to Mets is now basically dead after the interview and any other trade will be very difficult because teams now know they will have to ante up about 5 more million a yer plus maybe extend Shef's contract to make the trade happen
It's not that Shef wants to stay with the Yanks he is not a happy camper on the team and stated he does not want to be a team leader or anything else because he is not paid to do that. He basically said over and over that he had made compensations to come here and the Yanks will get nothing more than waht they paid for. He sees no one else doing anyting to help or sacrifice for the team so why should he.
Problem child and a mercenary. Thanks Tampa, Thanks Doc Gooden, Thanks Billy Conners and thanks George for being so hard up for moronic selfish players.
