I'm currently debating whether to make an offer for him in a keeper league. I've got a strong enough draft to make an offer to get him with just picks from next year. The other owner will take a deal for picks if the picks are good enough. My problem is that I've got Pujols, Crawford, MacDougal and Carpenter all out for various amounts of time on a 21 man roster right now...can't make a deal right now for another dead spot with only 1 dl slot. My other problem is that Sheets is such a huge question mark now...I just don't know whether I can take a chance on him regardless of his upside.

I dont think it's worth to get him.. he's so fragile.. like Harden.. will end up another trip to DL this season.. i had him last year and when I needed him most in the playoff .. damn guy was on the DL for the season... :-t

Has anyone heard anything about him other than the "we still don't have a timetable" crap? I'm reallly looking forward to seeing him back in the rotation.

What in the world is going on with Sheets?

Postby Yoda » Mon Jun 05, 2006 3:26 pm

Apparently no one knows what is really wrong with him or when he will be back. Does anyone else have any information on Sheets?

At this point, I think he just needs some vagisil.

MRIs were clean. No tears. No fractures. No aneurysms. Come on man.

This is by far the most comprehensive article I've seen on this particular enigma. It seems that they are really relying more on Sheets ' own feeling/timeline for the injury than working off of anything medical in particular. Does not look or sound good at this stage,

I'd really like some info too. I was counting on him for quite a few K's.
