Sheff's so badass he's why baseballs have stitches.
Great piece.

Love him or hate him, he's no chicken. I'd have him on my side in negotiating a contract and in a street fight (at the same time).

I love his whole thing about child support payments leading to an increase in street crime. I don't agree with it mind you, but I love that this man sits around and thinks about these things.

[4] Yes, I found that kind of odd..but Sheff is a fascinating and misunderstood cat. And damn, loved watching him swing the bat! (Hey now, that rhymes).

He also said something to the effect of, I paraphrase, "Jeter isn't all the way black," It's true, but no body ever had the balls to say it.

Of course, who in the civilized world is all the away anything any more. I'm dying to get my DNA test to find out what gems are in my family tree.

Oh, I like this, "If you're smart enough to make money out of the country, you shouldn't have to pay taxes on it."

Damn straight. Why do we even have to file, Jazz? It's a crime.
