He was one of the most reliable starters in baseball health wise until the 2nd half of last year. I really don't see why everyone has to bring this up over and over again. Yeah drafting a pitcher who missed the end of the year with an injury is risky, we get it... thats why he went in round 6 instead of round 3. The people who drafted him didn't do anything wrong, you have to pick your risks somewhere. (no I didn't draft him myself because pitching is for suckers).
The MRI came back negative, the injury itself is tendonitis on a different part of the shoulder than where he had surgery so it was most likely caused by him throwing the ball differently than normal, not stressing the old injury.
Ender pull your Carriage.
Pulling your Carriage: To be ignorant of the truth. Completely throw reason and rational thought to the wind. Defending the Indefensible. Wearing Blinders.
"The Clydesdales pulling the carriage in the Budweiser Commercials wear blinders so they can't see anything but straight ahead."
Don't make me start pulling old threads out. This guy is indefensible. Give it up.
You have an irrational dislike for Sheets and have proven it time and again by throwing out your nonsense. He is an injury risk, everyone knew that going in. He just as easily could have stayed healthy on the year as getting injured again though, hind sight is 20/20. There are a lot of players coming back from injuries every year, you take your risk on one or two and hope it works out, some come back strong, some don't.
There are dozens of pitchers that have been bargains the past few years because they were coming off of injuries. RJ a couple years ago, Carpenter, Pettitte last year, etc. etc. There have also been dozens who have failed to come back strong, there is no crystal ball on which is going to be which and saying I told you so because someone took a risk and it didn't pan out is just silly. Its called a risk for a reason. Just a year ago there were basically 0 injury concern with Sheets, he doesn't become injury prone because of one injury, it takes time to apply that tag to someone.
