Just can't stop writing about Saint Sheffield

Well it appears that Gary took exception to my comments on him in yesterday's blog - I should really apologize, I really didn't mean to criticize!

In response to my slight, Gary has decided that he has to set the story straight - only a couple of weeks after declaring that E-Rod was "the man" and that Sheffield would defend him with all his might should anything happen to him, he decides to throw A-Fraud, and Captain Intangibles, under the bus. As reported here but also here, there and everywhere, (Sports Illustrated also does a nice job of highlighting the best of Saint Sheff) Gary has decided that he isn't getting enough respect for his performance, and has decided, without being so bold as to actually name himself - that would just be boorish - to let the world know that he is the true leader of this team - just incredible.

In an expected twist, Gary denies that he has said any of the things reported, at least within the context reported - that the New York magazine had made stuff up to "juice" the story (nice choice of words there Gary) ahead of publication - only one problem there, the journalist has it all on tape and seems eager to take on Gary if it should come down to it.

2 threw a strike:

I heard that Shef's comments applied to the Yankee batting order, not to the clubhouse. It would be interesting to hear the tape to place his comments in a broader context.

Hi Marc,

I agree that the tape would be good for context, but they might make his comments appear more reasonable - why would we want that? ;-)
