The NY Daily News has an exceprt from a new article coming out Monday in the New York Magazine:
I know who the leader is on the team," Sheffield said in an explosive New York magazine interview set to hit newsstands Monday.
"I ain't going to say who it is, but I know who it is. I know who the team feeds off. I know who the opposing team comes in knowing they have to defend to stop the Yankees."
Gary has a lot of other "not too nice" things to say about the team. Does anybody wonder why he's been on some many clubs in his career? The Dodgers traded him to one of their arch rivals the Braves after he shot off his mouth. When the team is struggling so badly might it have been wiser to wait till after the season to express his concerns? This story reminds me a little of David Wells book that was released before the season had started a few years. He was a long time favorite of George before the book, and after it was released, The Boss wouldn't even talk to him.
What is the point Gary is trying to make? He's the big bad? So what, win some damn games and get into the play-offs. I do remember Sheffield playing like a dog after game three against the Red Sox last year. He was hardly a force in that series when it mattered most, so until he does what Jeter has for Hew York he should just play.
