Seriously? The most frugal organization NOT called the Marlins opened up their wallets for a free agent and it was for Ben Sheets?
$10 million on a guy who didn't pitch a game last year?
Yes, he is a talented pitcher when healthy... but he's NEVER healthy!
Let me repeat... HE PITCHED ZERO GAMES LAST YEAR!
Do you know who tied him in EVERY SINGLE statistical category?
Professor Stephen Hawking!
If Sheets stays healthy then the A's would have stolen an ace...
And if Milton Bradley doesn't become more erratic than Joe Pesci in Casino, then the Mariners will do well.
And you don't have to be a genius like Professor Hawking to see those odds are astronomically small.
