He had offseason surgery to repair the injuries and even if they are lingering (which I don't believe they are) and he's still putting up these numbers it really doesn't matter. He put up huge numbers last season with some horrible injuries and that didn't effect his production.
As a fantasy player he is not unpredictable which is ALL that matters in fantasy baseball. What he says doesn't have any effect on his numbers, which is unique, but thats who Gary Sheffield is. He's one of the few that is motivated and plays better when everything around him is in disorder. He thrives on chaos and when there isn't any, he just creates it for himself. And he does all of this, while posting numbers (all that matter in fantasy) that are far from unpredictable.
Believe it or not, Gary Sheffield is my favourite player on the Yankees.
