A very nice outing for Sheets. ;-D

Anyone want to take a guess as to how many times he gets traded in fantasy leagues tomorrow? :-D

LOL. Call me crazy, but I wouldn't want him, at least not for the price people will value him at after today. That division is impossible. Just wait until he has to play the Astros, Cubs and Cardinals in back to back to back series, then we'll see what he's really made of (especially if he plays IN Houston, Cincinatti and St. Louis....Yikes).

I'm not going after him, but if I owned him, I'd definitely put him up and see what kind of offers I could get. :-)

You know he went in the 20th round in our draft? I had no idea he was still around that late. Talk about a diamond in the rough for that guy so far. Made my Triple A Braves look silly.

He has actually dominated Houston & the Cubs:

G GS W L IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP BAA
vs.CHC 10 10 6 2 67.2 59 24 23 10 16 53 3.06 1.11 .236
vs.HOU 12 12 8 2 80.0 73 27 27 11 17 66 3.04 1.13 .239
vs.CIN 9 9 3 2 57.2 55 22 19 6 10 54 2.97 1.13 .252

Cards are a different story

vs.STL 12 12 3 6 75.1 87 43 40 11 24 48 4.78 1.47 .292

He's not a strikeout pitcher but this season he has already picked up a ton of k's and I'm holding onto him myself, don't think there's much surplus value you can get out of him. This is his breakout year, and I'll be cheering him on especially with the Brewers looking like they can provide decent run support ;-)

His velocity is up, his curve has always been one of the best in baseball and he developed a change up that he can use when one of his other pitches isn't working as well as normal so he goes deeper into games. Sheets is the real deal, expect 1 K per IP from him as long as his back holds out.

As for facing hard teams... brewers already played Houston and Stl on the road once and at home once. In his 4 games pitched vs those two teams his line is as follows...

22 IP, 11 ER, 20 Hits, 3 BB, 23 K's , 2 W, 1 L... and that includes opening day where he couldn't find the strike zone and left after 3 IP's and 3 BB's. Since then he has been money.


Now talking about the brewers, they had the hardest schedule in baseball in April and still came out of it around .500, the team is not as bad as they were last year, they are just thin on the 3-5 starter spots or they would be a decent team.

I saw this here once before. Sheets is a strikeout pitcher. Remember, he's only 25, and learning how to pitch.

At age 23 7.1 k/9
At age 24 6.4 k/9

Those are some nice looking k/9 for a kid.

MAD Why don't you want him? I drafted him on 2 teams, and only wish i had been quicker for him in my other 2.
