There’s not much to add to the GarySheffield’s wake of lunacy, other than he might want to have tea with Carl Everett so they can discuss the fallacy of dinosaurs and the moon landing. There might be no better reflection on Joe Torre than the fact that people who pop off after they are dealt or released have a history of antisocial disorder and could use a dallop of meds. It was a nice touch that Sheff referenced two other disgruntled former Yanks of African descent, because both of those ballplayers complained about playing time that they lost to… two other black players! Genius. So Kenny Lofton agrees with Sheff. Tony Womack could not be reached for comment, as he disappeared of planet Earth shortly after it was realized his playing career ended a few years before he retired.
Surely there are many fine editorials on this rhapsody. I’m fond of this Jon Heyman piece.
