I heard Sheets keeps babbling something about aliens wanting to steal his socks for fuel.

Woah. Wierd.

My gut feeling is Sheets will be OK and pitch on the 28th. He'll come back and justify our top picks. He has no arm trouble, so he shouldn't lose velocity or movement.

This is getting very worrisome. I am hoping another two weeks turns the trick, but from what I can gather, there's really no set timetable on infections such as this one.

What the hell is with this year?? It seems like the safe bet would be to punt pitching come draft day and just take your chances with all hitting! There's soo many top pitchers going down in the early months here it's becoming comical.. Anyway, hopefully Sheets turns out ok?? Alot of pitchers right now could have season long nagging injuries.. Will Sheets be ok for the year? What about Schmidt, Harden, or RJ who hasn't pitched like himself? Stupid pitching...
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I love that I tell myself before every draft that I won't take a pitcher in the first three rounds... then I see like 5 guys go in the first 20 picks and I panic and decide I have to have Ben Sheets.

I'm a draftard. :*)

Feel free to use that. ;-D

Worst year for top line pitching in fantasy I can recall. Disaster both for the starters and the closers.

Think it'll effect your draft strategy next year?

I've been starting Halladay, Burnett, Morris and Eaton all season and been winning pitching most weeks. No way I'm burning an early pick on an arm next year.

WTF is that about? Seems like more than an ear problem to me.


I dont see how this makes his injury LESS likely to be an ear infection, since your sense of balance comes from a small membrane in your inner ear.
