The dude can NEVER stay healthy. But if you're in a deeper league with a free DL spot, id probably pick him up.

In a 27-team AL with a deep bench, I'd pick him up in a heartbeat.

I have to admidt, I have a soft spot for Sweeny. I'm that idiot in your league (there's always one) who picks him up for those rare 1-2 games between DL stints.

I heard an analysis awhile back that was kind of interesting: take Mike Sweeney, adjust his career stats to Coors and what do you have? Todd Helton. Take Helton, adjust his numbers for KC and what do you have? Mike Sweeney. In a neutral environment, their numbers were at the time astonishingly close.

As for the remainder of the year ... consider the May 3 statement.

"If this thing lingers on through the summer it’s (retirement) is something I’d probably consider," But right now, I owe it to my teammates and ownership to make every effort to get healthy and get back in the lineup. I still have some fight left in me. Hopefully, it will be <b>only a couple of weeks</b>, and I can get back and help my teammates turn this thing around."

Today -- one month later -- he can't swing a bat safely. Even if he does recover this year, let's not forget that his back is just the malady <i>du jour</i>. Since Spring Training he has missed time for unrelated foot, back and knee issues.

Great guy -- but he's a wreck.
