It has been an absolutely brutal year for top pitchers.
Schilling: bust so far
Sheets: bust so far
Ol. Perez: bust
C. Zambrano: disappointing
Gagne: bust so far
Foulke: bust so far
This whole thing just pisses me off. I took Sheets early in my money league (21st overall) b/c he's generally been a reliable guy in not taking pit stops on the DL. Guess I learned my lesson that no one is safe from the injury bug, but this freak-injury stuff just sucks.
"The team had hoped Sheets could return in time to start Sunday's series finale against the Twins. But while participating in fielding drills on Saturday, his balance was thrown off by the reflective metallic labels on the seats at PNC Park. "
WTF is that about? Seems like more than an ear problem to me.
