That great philosopher, Gary Shefield


Recommended Posts

From espn.com:


In an interview with GQ magazine that's currently on newsstands, the typically outspoken Tigers designated hitter said Latin players have replaced African-Americans as baseball's most prevalent minority because they are easier to control.


"I called it years ago. What I called is that you're going to see more black faces, but there ain't no English going to be coming out. … [it's about] being able to tell [Latin players] what to do -- being able to control them," he told the magazine.

How would this comment go over?


Larry Bird: "The NBA is bringing in European players because they know they are easier to control than a white guy from Indiana."



My guess is that Larry would be answering tougher questions than Sheffield ever has to.

Sheffield made a point of telling GQ he is from a race that "demands respect"


..I find this disturbing, because respect is earned, not given. Last time I heard of someone saying that, it was comin' out of the mouth of a very short angry Austrian with a funny moustache.
