IRON SHEFF: The long-awaited marriage

IRON SHEFF: The long-awaited marriage of one of baseball's most loathsome players and one of its most loathsome teams may be off, as the New York Daily News reports that a last-minute demand for more money could derail the Yankees' deal with free agent outfielder Gary Sheffield.
It's a common occurance, these last-minute demands, when Sheffield has changed teams in the past- you may remember the wailing for an extension that preceded his trade from the Marlins to the Dodgers, and the subsequent whining that got him dealt by the Dodgers to the Braves.
If Sheff doesn't sign, and A-Rod goes to Boston, expect Steinbrenner to one-up the Bosox by signing Vladimir Guerrero to patrol right field.
