Default Sheffield: Open Mouth, Insert Foot.

I'm sure it will be pushed under the carpet 'considering'. Once again, cute how that works. He should thank his lucky stars that he's not Imus. Which reminds me.......where's Al and Jesse?

Quote:
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.

"Where I'm from, you can't control us. You might get a guy to do it that way for a while because he wants to benefit, but in the end, he is going to go back to being who he is. And that's a person that you're going to talk to with respect, you're going to talk to like a man.

"These are the things my race demands. So, if you're equally good as this Latin player, guess who's going to get sent home? I know a lot of players that are home now can outplay a lot of these guys."
This should sit well with Magglio Ordonez, Placido Polanco, Ivan Rodriguez, Carlos Guillen and Omar Infante. Y'know, his teammates...

That's quite a big byte Mr. Sheffield said.

Notice how Mr. Jackson and Al Sharpton are magically nowhere to be seen or heard from. They're like hypocritical ****roaches.

If this were a white player who said this, they'd be all over him in an instant. What a joke our society has become. This is coming from a black guy.

So glad Gary Sheffield's not on my team anymore. What an idiot.

As another black guy, I'm right there with ya man. MLK would be horrified at what's happened to our society.

Amazing how quiet it is huh? No outrage. No 24/7 news reports. Not having to issue apologies until he's blue in the face. Not having to travel to different Hispanic radio stations or giving speech's to certain groups for the rest of his life. Not losing his job.

What a joke.

He was forced to submit an explanation to clarify...it made almost no sense at all.

And to make it better, Torii Hunter comes out and opens his mouth saying that there will be no black players in the league at all in 10 years or so (I don't remember the exact number)...nice to see positive influences at work in professional sports.

Guillen and Polanco agreed with Sheffield saying that they were some what controlled. It was on the local sports talk show here yesterday.
