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


most are dumb, but some just work soooo well. I mean, how can you go wrong with "KRod"? It's brilliant!

Not a doctor, but dizziness can be one of the most frustrating things to treat cuz it can be caused by so many things, and most of them are not able to be diagnosed by a simple bloodtest. Oh, maybe its your eyes, your ears, your brain, your BP, etc.

Though not a MLB pitcher, my wife just went through a period of constant dizziness for about two months. Many tests and $$ later, we know dozens of things (tumors, fluid etc) that weren't causing it, but have yet to figure what actually was. Every doctor thought they had found something, but then it would later be ruled out. She gradually got rid of it but it was very disturbing to her to have to live and go on w our normal 3 kid life like that almost constantly for two months.

Now just imagine hurling the force of your whole body forward while balancing on one foot trying to hit the corner of the plate w a 90 MPH fastball while having that condition. Sucks to own him for sure. Sucks even more to be him right now.

It is frustrating to say the least, even more so as a Brewers fan and having to watch Wes freaking Obermueller fill his spot in the rotation. He goes today against the Nationals, so our bats better be ready to score 6-7 runs at least. Anyway, I'm kind of anticipating an early June return at this point. If he comes back earlier, that's gravy. I was hoping he'd be back in time for the Twins series, but that's looking pretty dubious at this point.

The rotation has been overacheiving without him, with the exception of Doug Davis. I can't help thinking that if we had the Sheets/Davis combo of last year (most combined quality starts in the bigs) right now, we'd be something more like 21-16 instead of 18-19.

One positive thing I can say about Sheets' injury is that this layoff should save some mileage on his arm. He's logged an awful lot of innings at such a young age:

151.1
216.2
220.2
237.0

I honestly think that this will go away when he wakes up one day and he'll be able to return very quickly. I'm not too worried.

Some good points on this thread, Sheets is probably the safest pitcher on the DL right now. Most likely won't have recurring inner ear trouble (Let's hope not anyway) throughout the year.

How can you say this will not reoccur? He suffered the same inner ear infection last year around the end of May beginning of June. Somebody needs to tell him to stop putting stuff in his ears.
