    I looked at his game log from his Oakland season, and he was starting to return to form when he suffered yet another injury.

    Remember when the Oakland A's gave him $10,000,000 in 2010? That was awesome.

    But in all seriousness, his 2004 season was one of the great pitching performances of the past decade (264 SO: 32 BB, 162 ERA+ in 237 IP), and he finished with a 12-14 record. He must have received some really bad run support...

    As a longtime Brewers fan (and a Ben Sheets fan) it'd be great to see Sheets make a comeback. He has/had really filthy stuff when he is/was on

    His 2004 season really stands out: a 162 OPS+, 2.70 ERA, 0.983 WHIP, and yet the Brewers were so bad that year he only had a 12-14 record! Considering how "un-Sheets-like" his 2010 season was, it'll be a real longshot for him to make it back, but it'd be great to see. He's only 33 years old

    Could Ben McDonald be next?

    Mark Prior is the poster boy for comeback attempts.

    Have Ben Sheets and Rich Harden ever been spotted together in the same place?

    It doesn't hurt to see if he can do something right now. The Braves rotation is quite... disgusting is the word.

    Ben Sheets Comeback

    So, I just saw that the Braves signed Ben Sheets. Apparently, he has been coaching his two sons and throwing against a pitchback in the back yard. He talked the Braves into a tryout while he was in town for a youth tournament, and they signed him. Sheets didn't pitch at all in 2009 and 2011. He pitched for Oakland in 2010. He is set to pitch Wednesday for the AA Mississippi Braves. He's expected to throw 75 pitches. It sounds like they believe he's already in great shape. So it's just a matter of seeing what he has and getting his arm ready. I would love to see him succeed.
