Sheffield Says He Didn’t Ask For Extension

Gary Sheffield says he didn't ask for an extension from the Mets, according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post (via Twitter). Sheffield, who says he's now ready to move on and finish the season, says GM Omar Minaya called the meeting, not him. As Ben Shpigel of the New York Times notes, Sheffield wishes he had found out about his waiver status from Minaya instead of the media.

We heard yesterday that the Mets denied Sheffield an extension when he asked for one. Now, Minaya says he expects Sheffield to remain a Met for the rest of the season, according to Shpigel.
