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.”
(N.Y. Daily News )
Sheffield  will appeal the suspension.
5. Big shout out to our pal Steven Goldman  and his wife Stephanie on the birth of their second child, a baby boy named Clemens (named after Samuel, not Roger).
Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Cliff and I will be in and around the tri-state area watcing the Yanks, so fall through if you like, we’ll be here.
