The Yankees have received three excellent prospects for Sheffield, courtesy of the Detroit Tigers. I am unfamilar with Kevin Whelan, but the two other players have me plenty excited:
Starter Humberto Sanchez has great potential, and Anthony Claggett possesses some serious upside as Mariano’s heir apparent. I am ecstatic.
I will dedicate a more thorough post on the trade, and my complete thoughts regarding the Gary Sheffield era, either later today or tomorrow.
