 ST.PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -In his first season after leaving the New York Yankees, Gary Sheffield has been impressed by the Boston Red Sox.
``You've got to give those guys credit. A lot of times people always look at what somebody ain't doing, but you've got to look at what somebody is doing,'' the Detroit Tigers designated hitter said Wednesday.
Boston began the day with an 11 1/2-game AL East lead over second-place Baltimore and was 14 1/2 games ahead of the Yankees, who were tied for last.
Following three seasons in New York, Sheffield was dealt to Detroit in November for three minor league pitchers.
``I'm just like everybody else. You pick up the paper, you watch TV, and if it's on I watch it,'' Sheffield said. ``It's nothing that I get caught up in or worry about. They're another team, like everybody else.''
The defending AL champion Tigers started the night 1 1/2 games back of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central and start a four-game series against the Indians on Thursday at Jacobs Field.
``We can make up ground,'' Sheffield said. ``That's who you want to play. You want to play teams to make up ground on and not depend on other teams to do it for you.''
