Last night as I switched between Idol and SNY (like you don't) I saw Gary Sheffield holding a bat. All I could think was what a wasted at bat it would be.

There's talk of Murphy playing first if Delgado goes on the DL and Jerry says the Mets can get a look at Sheffield.

Why? He's old and slow and the Mets play in a triples park with 600 foot fences that are 30 feet high.

Did Ryan Church scratch Jerry's car? Steal his girlfriend?

Let's take more looks at Reed. Maybe he's good and can be part of the core-two along with Murphy, Pelfrey, Santos, and Niese.

Tatis deserves some at bats too based upon 2008.

Sheffield? No thanks. He wastes a roster spot. There's no future there, no need to take a look.
