Please offer a better lf option for 2007, which is all I care about.

Well, if the PD says it, it must be true. Why in the world would we go after him? We would pay him close to Sheff money for half the player.

And, according to the AP, Sheffield stated he will be a problem child to whoever he is traded to.
Sheffield is an injury riddled cancer

Sheff suitors just tune out Sheff BY SAM BORDENDAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER ST. LOUIS - Gary Sheffield's harsh comments about a potential trade apparently haven't dissuaded teams from inquiring about the Yankees slugger. The Astros and Indians, according to sources, recently have made it known they would be interested in landing Sheffield despite his assertions that he wouldn't be pleased about getting dealt somewhere new for only one year.GM Brian Cashman did not return calls yesterday, but it's believed that the Yanks are planning to pick up Sheffield's $13million option for 2007 as a precursor to moving him. The Astros are in the market for a power-hitting outfielder and are expected to bid on free agent Carlos Lee, though that could get very expensive; since Sheffield is under contract for only one more year, he is a more attractive financial commitment for a team that isn't able to afford Lee or the other big free-agent slugger, Alfonso Soriano.Other teams expected to be interested in Sheffield include the Orioles and Angels. It's unlikely that the Yankees will be able to land a top-level player or prospect for Sheffield, but some executives believe they could land an established major leaguer (perhaps a reliever) or a mid-tier prospect. Plus, by picking up Sheffield's option, the Yankees are able to direct where Sheffield goes and can keep him away from a rival such as the Red Sox or Mets.

Pup, Wedge couldnt handle Bradley or Phillips... and they were making the league minimum. Even talking about Sheffield coming here is wasted time, they would never invest that much money in a player only to find out in a month that Wedge cant deal with him...
