Just a couple of tidbits as the Yankees get set for a weekend series with the Tigers in the Motor City:
1. Gary Sheffield received a two-game suspension for losing his cool last Sunday night against the Mets:
"I think the decision by Bob Watson was absolutely wrong," Yankees president Randy Levine said. "The entire incident was precipitated by what we know today to be a completely incorrect call and an overreaction by the umpire in ejecting Sheff from the game prematurely."
