Sheets Himself

Ben Sheets may need surgery. I know you are all shocked.

This throws a bit of a wrench into the whole Sheets situation. For one thing, if he doesn't sign anywhere by the June draft, the Brewers don't receive a draft pick. It's apparently also unclear who would pay for the surgery.

Poor Benny. What could be worse than pitching an outstanding season in your contract year and then seeing your elbow and shoulder explode right at the end?

I feel bad for the guy. He'll have a roof over his head but he was well into September thinking he's looking at a 4-70 type deal, and now, nothing.

I am so glad he turned down both of the Brewers offers
