Gary Sheffield tells the New York Post that he’s in “tip-top shape,” having lost 15 pounds, and is considering some “things on the table” to return for a 23rd season.
The former Brewer-Padre-Marlin-Dodger-Brave-Yankee-Tiger-Met, who has 509 career home runs to go with an impressive .292/.393/.514 line, said he has not made up his mind whether to play another season, wondering if it’s “worth it.”
“I am in tip-top shape,” Sheffield said. “I am healthy and I have been working to get back to where I need to be. I am feeling great and I lost 15 pounds, down to 212.”
Feeling good enough to play the outfield regularly?
“At 212, I could run for days,” said Sheffield.
Sheffield didn’t say which teams had contacted him, but did say that the Mets were not one of them. And before you Mets fans out there breathe a sigh of relief, realize that Sheff was second on the team last season with a whopping 10 home runs. Beggars can’t be choosers. Maybe Omar should get on the phone.
