Link-O-Rama: Sheffield wants to play in 2010

Sep 22, 2009, 3:03 PM EDT

* Gary Sheffield wants to play next season and has shown that he’s still a productive hitter, but the market for a 41-year-old, oft-injured, should-be platoon designated hitter doesn’t figure to be especially strong.
* Cecil Cooper took the fall for the Astros’ disappointing season, but as Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle points out the general manager who built a 70-80 team with a $107 million payroll also deserves plenty of blame.
* Edwin Jackson’s recent struggles have some people suggesting that he’s been tipping pitches, but a career-high workload for a pitcher who came into this season with a 5.15 lifetime ERA is probably an overlooked theory.
* Adam LaRoche has hit .350 with 12 homers in 45 games since returning to Atlanta and Chipper Jones wants the Braves to re-sign the impending free agent. LaRoche has played for three teams this season, so naturally he’s looking for a multi-year deal.
* The man who once traded Pedro Martinez for Delino DeShields writes about the mistake that Billy Beane made trading Andre Ethier for Milton Bradley.
* Yovani Gallardo is now officially the Brewers’ ace.

    All kidding aside, the Red Sox SHOULD look at him. Ortiz is not a hitter anymore. It is killing the team to have a DH that can’t hit. Always amazes me when a team has a DH that can’t hit.

    Keep Sheffield out of Boston please!!! He is only driven by a quest to reach 3000 hits for his career. He wanted to come back in the worst way in 2009 only because he was stuck at 499 HR’s going in. Plus the money doesn’t hurt either

    That hack can’t even write his own article – Bill Plaschke wrote the same thing 3 years ago and got FJM’d for it.
