  1. OK, if you need power for cheap (and it will be cheap) why not take a guy that could be angry enough to provide it? Is he an asshole? Yes, he is. Can he still hit? Remains to be seen. Is it worth a million and a couple dozen games with limited at-bats to find out? YES.

    I went through the same problem with Steph Marbury, and my arguments against were mostly, “he’s a dick and might not be good anymore.” My arguments for him were, “he could be the small pick-up that allows the second unit to beat other teams.” I’ll take the chance at the latter any day. ANY DAY.

    he is an asshole, yes. and that accounts for a lot of my trepidation. but also, and i know this is TERRIBLE in terms of wanting my team to win, but i really really want to see murphy and church try and and contribute like i (and other mets fans) hope. i understand the reasons for it, and will be really happy to see him contribute with the game on the line. doesn’t mean i’ll cheer him, and doesn’t mean that i won’t be wishing that, instead of sheffield in that big spot, it was murphy or church proving themselves.

    the asshole factor means nothing to me. too old, can’t hit. signed for being “famous.”
