Gerry Fraley says the Rangers are asking about Sheffield.

Really? The Rangers are interested in a 40-year-old DH scheduled to make $14MM in 2009? REALLY?

The guy threw this line at the world last season in 114 games: .225/.326/.400/.725. Sheffield has passed the decline phase of his career and is approaching the 4:00 PM dinner phase.

Fraley is long removed from his tenure as a Rangers reporter, but apparently he's still something of a sucker. What on Earth could possibly be happening in Las Vegas that would allow this to make any kind of sense?

The Ranges [sic] need a middle-of-the-lineup bat to replace Milton Bradley, headed out of town as a free agent. Sheffield carries risks. He is 40 years old and has been troubled by shoulder problems in recent seasons. Sheffield last had a 30-homer, 100-RBI season in 2005. --Gerry Fraley
