Gary Sheffield Traded to Detroit Tigers

Sheffield to Detroit for pitching prospects Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan and Anthony Claggett. Detroit then turns around and extends Sheffield's contract for another 2-years so that the 38-year old slugger will only cost them $41 million over the next 3-years.

Tiger fans can take solace in the fact that this mistake isn't as nearly as great as the idea to sign Juan Gonzalez to a 7-year $148 million contract was. Then again - Juan-Gone decided against that contract while Sheffield will be on the books for the next 3-years.
