First of all, I doubt this is a Yankees player. I would be shocked if it’s Matsui. And, if it were Bernie Williams, at this point, do we even care? As Jen of NoSenseWorrying.com points out in a comment over at BaseballMusings.com, if there’s an agent involved, that sorta suggests that it’s not Sheffield.
Therefore, from the Yankees fans perspective, this should just be a “fun” wait and see rumor/story – and not something to fret over.
There are at least a dozen suspects – and at least 3 or 4 strong ones in that group. Let the speculation begin.
