Fire Torre, Bring Sheff Back

From The Nation Of Islam Sports Blog [via Deadspin]:

We are so quick to laugh and belittle players when they hold out or complain about contracts. Especially when they say "this isn't about money, this is about respect".

Until you have been a Negro, belittled by Joe Torre in front of the mostly white Yankees, you will never understand how true it is.
Sheff went 7 for 15 in Seattle this weekend. He hit a grand slam. He walked four times. He stole four bases in four attempts. He stole home.

He performed these dazzling feats for a postseason rival whose manager talks to him like a man.
