I'm not sure how the cap and all that works out but couldn't the Sox have gotten Gary Sheffield from the Yanks.I could be wrong but i remember reading somewhere they wanted to dump sheff plus everyone knows how bad they needed a CF.So my question is wouldn't Sheff have been the smarter move

Sheff is not the kind of player KW, Ozzie, or most any Sox fan would want on this team. The steroid allegations, clubhouse problems, etc. Thome is the kind of player that can replace Rowand in every aspect except in the field and on the basepaths. The only upgrade Sheff would bring is his offense.

Sheff whined about how he didn't want to be traded to another team or else he would retire. Theoretically the Yanks could have proposed that trade, but I doubt KW would accept this butthole in his clubhouse even if it were for free.

Sheff did make me laugh when he said he was the leader of the Yanks.I mean come on i hate the yanks but the leader is Jeter not Sheff

Beyond all of that, what makes you think the Yankees asking price is merely Rowand and a couple of low minors pitching prospects?

I believe Sheff is also more expensive, is not holding a gun to the Yankees head about where he will allow himself to be traded, and of course is closely linked to the BALCO scandal.

Deal's already done, let it go...

The Yanks love Rowand. And they were in AA; that's our launching pad into the majors for many pitchers.
But who wants to deal with that personality on this team?

Sheffield? I wouldn't want his steroid-using, clubhouse trouble-doing, errors-
on-purpose making, lying, cheating, dirty, rotten scumbag ass anywhere near
the White Sox clubhouse.

Salery cap
There is no salary cap in Major League Baseball. Never has been and probably never will be.

I think Shef would be harder to root for in a Sox uni than Belle, Navarro and Koch combined. I can't stand him.

On top of all that, Shef has a veto in his deal that he said he would use for ANY trade forcing him to leave the Yanks. Remember he killed the deal to the Mets before it even happened and has used that threat multiple times to kill any idea of him leaving.

Plus, how would Omar Minya have a job if there were a Salary cap? I heard after he lands Soriano and Manny, and Signs Molina that he's going to have X-hibit and West COast Customs come out and Pimp Shea Stadium...
