Well, here it is. Stephen Rodrick's profile on Gary Sheffield for New York Magazine. Truthfully, there is little here that will come of any great surprise: Sheffield has a chip on his shoulder, can be difficult with the press, and has an innate ability to speak his mind and say "controversial" things. You don't say.
"I just don't enjoy the game the way you want me to," says Sheffield. By "you" he means reporters, for sure, but also many fans. "People say about me, 'He's moody,' but I don't see them in the same mood every day. Some days I feel like talking, some days I don't. Some days I don't feel like looking at you. I'm tired of looking at you. And I'm sure you're tired of looking at me. They're trying to catch me in a moment where I'm vulnerable. They're trying to do damage. I don't do damage to no one."
Maybe sometimes to himself, but that's nothing a two-run home run won't cure.
