Conspiracy Theory: Cry Me a River

Given the beating Detroit has taken at the hands of Cleveland teams the past week or so, I thought it would be interesting to read the Detroit media's take on things.

Among the articles I found was here from the Detroit Free Press, which includes some stellar grammar, some even more compelling logic, and apparently some sort of veiled threat (to MLB??) from Gary Sheffied regarding Thursday's bat-handle-throwing incident and the resulting 3-game suspension.  

Among other things, Sheffield claims he is the victim of a strike-zone conspiracy and doesn't receive the respect he feels is due to a veteran.  

I find his comments within this article rather incredible . . . and utterly lacking in class.  

As a complete aside (but certainly not worthy of a new post), after carefully reading Sheldon Ocker's account of the game here, I have to wonder if he (or perhaps his editor) was really watching.  Read carefully and see if you are as unimpressed with his recollection of detail as I am.  He can do better.
