I think middle rounds for Sheets (10th at the earliest) sounds about right, still. Somebody'll probably reach for earlier than that, but if he dropped to me I'd still take him. He's still a completely different beast than Harden, who I won't touch unless it's as a last round flyer.
I think these injuries have a lot to do with make up as well. It seems to me that the organization is babying him and allowing him to take time off for every little thing wrong with his body. I am really unsure what happened to him since his break out year but mentally and physically he cannot hold up for an entire season.
Well, I don't know if the organization is necessarily babying him. He's been on the DL for a torn finger ligament (this year) and a torn back muscle (parts of the previous 2 years). Pulling him for cramps last night might appear to be babying, but from a manager's perspective, if he's going to be less effective b/c it hurts to push off and get his legs behind him, I wouldn't want him pitching. It's a pennant race and we have other options. It sounds as if he shouldn't miss a start, but we'll see I guess. In theory, he could get 2 more starts in, and that would give him 26 on the year. Do I wish he had more, yes, but 26 is still okay. Basically, to draft him, you have to say "would I be okay with him giving me 25-28 great starts and missing some time". I'd still draft him, but I'd temper my expectations.
