    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Gary Sheffield knew full well he was doping, and Jason Giambi was turned on to a cocktail of performance-enhancing drugs similar to what Barry Bonds was taking, according to a new book. "Game of Shadows," set for release Thursday, says BALCO's performance-enhancing drugs were used by several athletes, including track stars Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery, NFL players such as Bill Romanowski, and sluggers including Bonds, Sheffield and Giambi. It centers on Bonds' allegedly extensive drug regimen - steroids, human growth hormone, insulin and more - but also undercuts Sheffield's claims that he took designer steroids...

    NEW YORK -- Last Thursday evening in Boston's Fenway Park, the New York Yankees' Gary Sheffield was retrieving a fair ball along the right field line when he was punched by a spectator in the stands -- or brushed, or poked, it is not really clear. Sheffield picked up the ball, took a swipe at the offending fan, threw the ball back into play, and then seemed ready to rush into the stands a la Ron Artest, when a Red Sox security guard came hurtling onto the scene. Maybe the guard caused Sheffield to pull up short, or maybe, as...

    Agent: Minister Tried To Get $20,000 Over R. Kelly Sex Tape CHICAGO -- The alleged victim of an extortion plot by a Chicago-area minister has been identified as the wife of New York Yankees outfielder Gary Sheffield, NBC5's Anna Davlantes reported. Rufus Williams, Sheffield's manager, released the information in a press conference Tuesday afternoon. Williams said the Rev.

Kelly. Williams said he went to the FBI after Mosley...
