Ever since his famous falling out with Scott Boras, Gary Sheffield has acted as his own agent. He informed the Globe’s Pete Abraham this morning that four teams have contacted him with interest for 2010.
Sheffield thinks he can still play the field a bit, and he seems to think that he can hang around for the 311 hits he needs to reach 3000. Neither of those things are the least bit likely, but he could certainly be useful as a DH or pinch hitter as long as he’s realistic about his asking price. I mean, he’s no less useful than Ken Griffey. At least if you keep the marketing and P.R. out of it.
