Sheffield Plays The Race Card

New, 15 comments

I hate to push down the game thread, but this story seems like fodder to last for weeks. Gary Sheffield opens his big mouth...again. In an upcoming Real Sports interview, Gary proves why he isn't welcome back on any team for which he used to play.

"I know when I was there the couple of blacks that were there, every one of them had an issue with the organization," he says in the interview.

"They had an issue with Joe Torre," Sheffield continued. "They weren't treated like everybody else. I got called out in a couple of meetings that I thought were unfair."
He didn't reserve his criticism for Joe Torre, either.
As for Jeter, Sheffield said the shortstop, who is half black and half white, "just ain't all the way black."
And here's a classic Sheffield quote that will stay with him for his entire life.
"In a million years, I don't care what anybody says, steroids is something you shoot in your butt. I do know that . . . The bottom line is steroids is something you stick in your butt -- period."
It only seems fitting that Gary Sheffield knows the ins and outs of the butthole. He seems to talk from there quite often.
