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.


Oh come on... it's all a huge conspiracy to cover up complications from back surgery. They've just been running him to ENT guys for show. Sometimes they put some green jello in his ear for added realism.

He also framed OJ and ate your last frozen pizza. ;-7

It stinks that Sheets is missing time, but I'll take an ear infection over arm problems. And the ear infection won't require surgery, just antibiotics and time. He's not going to be any worse for the wear, and might actually be fresher down the stretch because of it.

I'm sooo tired of my guys having random DL trips. This is nearly as bad as the year Sasaki fell down his stairs while carrying a suitcase. Hopefully this doesn't end Sheets career like that ended Sasaki's. :-b

Your Equalibrium is directly related to your inner ear area and without proper equalibrium you can barely even walk or stand up so I would have to say that the injury has the potential to be much more serious than people think. Some people never regain proper equalibrium after experiencing difficulties with it. Imagine that feeling of light headedness that you feel when you have a sinus headache or when you are sick and the room is spinning...imagine feeling that all the time.

I just want to know why fantasy baseball players feel the need to make up fancy names for different players? I've never heard Ben Sheets go by "Benny", it's just like someone dubbed Matt Holliday "Matty". Annoying.

Really smart ass....then you should listen to the Brewers local broadcasters, I have heard them refer to "BEN" as "BENNY" a whole bunch of times. So does that make it ok, Mr. Name Nazi?

Benny is used all the time when referring to Sheets.

The thing I can't take is the stupid first-last combos. "ManRam" somehow doesn't sound very heterosexual.
