Tigers Release Aging Star Sheffield

  • March 31, 2009, 2:17 PM

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Gary Sheffield's next home run will be his 500th in the major leagues.

The question is: What uniform will he be wearing when he hits it?

The Detroit Tigers released the nine-time All-Star on Tuesday, leaving him without a team as he closes in on becoming the 25th player to reach the milestone.

Sheffield left camp as the rest of his former teammates were reporting for an afternoon game against the Washington Nationals.

How many of you guys watch 60 Minutes?

So the ink hasn’t even dried on my NCAA Tournament brackets yet and Memphis head coach John Calipari is already worried about ditching his players for a new job. To be perfectly blunt, that is a really stinky thing for Coach Cal to do. Like, stinkier than a three week old burrito.

Reports are that Calipari will take the vacant head coaching position with the storied basketball program at the University of Kentucky. After nine years building up Memphis hoops, Calipari wants to cash in on his success. The key word there is cash, because that’s probably what’s driving his decision.
Unfortunately, what’s good for Coach Calipari’s bank account isn’t good for the kids around him.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Quarterback Carson Palmer considers his throwing elbow fully healed as he begins offseason workouts with his Cincinnati Bengals teammates.

Palmer chose not to have reconstructive surgery for a partially torn ligament and tendon in his right elbow, which sidelined him for 12 games last season. Instead, he decided to see whether rest would heal the injury.
