The audio from Gary Sheffield's interview on HBO's Real Sports with Andrea Kremer. Amongst the highlights:
- Sheffield can't avoid controversy
- Yankees treat black and white players differently
- Joe Torre called him out
- Sheffield took the cream and the clear
- Sheffield is not a steroid user
- Steroids are only injected in the butt
- He was controlled by Barry Bonds
It was quite a well-done interview on all ends. I really enjoy Sheffield for speaking his mind and providing entertainment. One thing though, just because he did not know what he was taking does not absolve him from having used steroids while under Barry's watch — just like it doesn't absolve Barry. You have to be careful about the products you put in your body and the people with whom you surround yourself.
Letting Bonds control him was one of Sheffield's biggest mistakes. Overall, it was an excellent interview.
