Looks like Gary Sheffield is at it again (www.espn.com). This time he is going after Scott Boras, his ex-agent. Seems like Boras is asking for compensation for negotiating Sheffield's 2003 New York Yankees contract, when Sheffield said he had fired Boras before the negotiations and represented himself. Now Sheffield is calling Boras "a bad person." In the press, Boras does seem to be an unscrupulous, money-grubbing, client-losing person, but Sheffield is no saint. Sheffield is the guy who got arrested with uncle Dwight Gooden, pissed off Dodgers management wanting more money, thinks Joe Torre is racist, was named in the Mitchell Report, and thinks Latin players are easy to control saying: "What I called is that you're going to see more black faces, but there ain't no English going to be coming out" (www.msnbc.com). Huh? Yeah, well Gary, that ain't no English coming out of your mouth too.
