Sheff Not Expected To Be A Phillie

Andy Martino of the Phila. Inquirer reports that the chances of gary Sheffield being a Phillie are low…

“Although neither side would eliminate the possibility of the 40-year-old Sheffield’s becoming a Phillie, multiple team sources told The Inquirer that the chances of signing him are, in the words of one official, ‘very slim’. “

All I see is people that aren’t in baseball slamming this option. Well, take the opinion of someone who does… Tyler Kepner, the Yankees Beat Writer for the NY Times..

“A motivated Sheff, with something to prove, is a very dangerous hitter. But he’s very old, and I don’t know how he’d handle bench work. My guess: not well.”
 
OK… discuss
