Sitting at a table in a room next door to where Selig and other league executives trumpeted the World Cup-style event, Gary Sheffield criticized the concept and said there's no chance he'll participate.
"My season is when I get paid," he said flatly. "I'm not doing that. . . . I'm not sacrificing my body or taking a chance on an injury for something that's made up." Sheffield, whose is well-known for being outspoken, added, "A lot of guys feel that way. They won't say it like I will, though."
Still all about the money, eh Gary?
