Revisiting Ben Sheets

Hey everyone,

It's your favorite guy on Halos Heaven... marshgr!! I know there are some out there who appreciate me, so to them "what's up?" to the rest... well I will just leave that one alone. To the Rev... I know you can't stand me, but at least I know baseball unlike others on this blog.

Ok... back to Ben Sheets.  I can't believe he is still on the market.  Yes, I know he missed most of September with an injury and is a risk to miss more time; however, there is a chance he will be fine. Would we be so concerned if he missed a month in July and then declared healthy?  From all accounts he is ready to go and has a full release to throw.. right now.

Highlights of the article...

  1. The projection systems have him at no less than 25 starts for next year... Bill James (the best in my eyes).. has him at 29.
  2. He has a career ERA of 3.72 and has the fourth highest strikeout-to-walk ratio OF ALL TIME.
  3. There are five teams in the mix with the Rangers being the most likely, followed by the Mets, Cardinals, Indians and Brewers.

The Angels need to get into the mix!!!!  Please!!!!  Even I would be happy and confident going into the season with Ben Sheets in the rotation. Can you imagine a 1-2 punch of Lackey and a healthy Ben Sheets... add Ervin Santana, Joe Saunders and Jared Weaver and we would have the best rotation in baseball.

I think he is worth the risk.  Let's do an incentive based contract with a fairly high guaranteed amount and beat the Rangers to him. I honestly think he is good for 15 Wins and 160+ Innings.

What does everyone think?
