It would be 4 weeks from when he started throwing barring a setback. So somewhere around the weekend of July 22nd (maybe a few days earlier).

You know, he isn't even saying he feels good at this point.

Reading Sheets quotes is like reading lines from Eeyore: "a little bit better," "getting pretty close, I think," etc ... not sure if it's just his nature, but he doesn't seem upbeat.

I'm pulling for him, but man, every time I read a quote from him I can just feel a brooding sense apprehension. Probably just the way the guy is, but come on, pal, how about a little ray of hope, here.

“It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily. "So it is." "And freezing." "Is it?" "Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said, brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately.”
