Gary Sheffield To The Disabled List?

Earlier this afternoon we posted the following on our site…

Earth to Sheffield, earth to Sheffield, can you read me? You would think that with Beltran going on the DL, it would open up even more playing time for right fielder Gary Sheffield. Especially when you consider that he is now our active homerun leader, and only true power source. So why has he yet to take the field since Beltran hit the skids?

“I’ve got to make sure we keep him fresh,” Manuel said. “It’s no secret that his legs are still somewhat bothering him. So we’re trying to freshen him up as much as possible.”

Jerry Manuel said that he wanted to keep Sheffield fresh and give his knees some rest, but is there more to it than that?

Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post thinks so and he wrote the following on his Twitter minutes ago…

Gary Sheffield is not in the lineup again (knee) and might be headed to the DL.

This starting to border on the ridiculous now… And the sad part is that we never seem to get a straight answer from the Mets. Everything is always clouded in mystery.

Stay tuned…
