Sheff returns

Gary Sheffield returns to the lineup tonight. He said before the game that he felt good, and that his swing felt good after swinging this afternoon. We’ll see how it turns out. Jacque Jones also feels fine after his collision with the railing Thursday. Carlos Guillen is out again, still struggling with the knee but feeling significantly better. Leyland is at least holding out hope he could be back tomorrow.
