The story is that Ben Sheets signed a contract with the Texas Rangers, but went on to fail the physical.The elbow injury that kept Sheets out of the end of the season has apparently not healed itself as doctors said it would and it's now being reported that surgery is necessary.As he was on our roster when he injured it, it's likely that the Brewers will have to foot the bill for his surgery. Addi...

Winter meetings start today and first on the agenda for Doug Melvin is to meet with Sabathia's people to find out where the Brewers stand. It's been a month since the Brewers made their offer and since then, the lines of communication have been pretty closed.*The Brewers signed former Orioles closer Jorge Julio to a non-guaranteed one year deal last week. Though he has prior experience as a closer...

The Brewers offered arby today to Brian Shouse, Ben Sheets and CC Sabathia. They declined to offer it to Eric Gagne. While we obviously wanted to offer it to CC, things become a little muddier in terms of Sheets. While the Brewers likely offered arby to all three in order to secure supplemental draft picks should they leave Milwaukee, they've also tied themselves into a good size $11 million or so...

And put me firmly on the train of people that aren't sure we should even be considering signing him.Starting this time last year and throughout the season, the "now or never" philosophy was clearly in play for this team. It was widely known and thoroughly accepted that everything was all about this season - this was the big push and we'll worry about next year later. The implication was that we kn...

After Ben Sheets left yet another game early last night, I was left wondering just how much he costs himself every time this happens. Are we talking $4 million every time he exits? Is there a way to quantify the cost?Over at Bugs and Cranks, the departure left them with questions, too. Namely, is Ben Sheets a mediocre ace or a spectacular middle-of-the-0rder guy?       Ben Sheets: The W...

From the Houston Chronicle (via BrewerFan.net) Recruiting Sheets Roy Oswalt promises to deliver yet another recruiting pitch to Milwaukee Brewers righthander Ben Sheets, who is expected to be one of the top pitchers on the free-agent market this winter. “Yeah, this is the last time we see him,” Oswalt said. “I’m going to say something to him and see where he’s at.” Oswalt ...

Ok, it's not that bad, but yesterday I was reading the mailbag over at MilwaukeeBrewers.com and McCalvy included this tidbit: By the way, Yost said Monday morning that he has several top-secret scenarios in mind for his starting rotation down the stretch. He could stay the course and simply bump all five starters back a day when the team is off, but even that won't work during the week of Aug....

The Milwaukee Brewers, like many other MLB teams, are being kicked in the teeth once again after living up to their end of a bargain. It appears the Brewers ‘Ace,’ Ben Sheets, is looking to take his accomplished resume elsewhere. Sheets says he’s headed in the direction of free agency, and we know how that usually turns out for the Brewers: bubkes. Despite the fact Sheets has been stained with injury, the Brewers have done a pretty good job trying to retain talent and has been candid about their intentions with players.
