if you knew that Gary Sheffield was now a baseball agent?!?! I certainly didn't, but he apparently represents Jason Grilli of the Rockies.

yeah I remember hearing about that. He doesn't have many clients yet. He was kind of a bad teammate so it's interesting to see him going this way.

Wasn't Gary Sheffield his own agent when he was a player? Wikipedia stated he became an agent after his career, but I though he negotiated his own contract with the Yankees.

He definitely did negotiate a few of his own contracts, but he'd usually get an agent and then fire him.

Also, I will raise my hand, because I knew this. He's an asshole but he probably wouldn't be the worst agent in the world.

I knew this too, but only because I saw he was trying to represent a couple of the kids in the draft this past year.
