A long time ago when I was the Yankee beat writer for this paper and a Yankee official and I were discussing having difficult personalities on a roster. And the Yankee official said, You can have a jerk on the team, but it better be Barry Bonds, not Mel Hall. Yes, it is more tolerable to accept bad acts from great players. So I am confused why any team is considering this version of Gary Sheffield, even if the cost is just the major league minimum of $400,000. It is one thing to put up with the bellyaching from, say, the 2003 Sheffield. But why put up with what will surely soon be complaints about playing time and more for this past-prime version of Sheffield
