2004 Sheets felt like watching greatness. His 18 k game was truly a masterpiece and the undoubted peak of his career.

He's my favorite baseball player of all time, and its a huge shame how injuries derailed his career.

Sad part is you could be talking about Mark Prior or Kerry Wood too....

Kerry Wood had a good career. Didn't reach his ceiling, but he did alright. Prior was kind of like watching a trainwreck in slow motion with how scouts described his mechanics and then slowly having his arm fall apart.

That's debatable...

Point is, the an injury derailed his career. After watching him dominate as a starting pitcher in 1998 (including the 20 strikeout game against Houston) he misses all of 1999 due to injury and was never the same pitcher again. Sheets and Wood are mirror images of each other in that aspect.

He's my favorite player as well, and I was at his first win against the Expos back in 2001, and I could tell then that he could have been great. But injuries, some of which were self-inflicted due to his lack of off-season training, really hurt him in the end. But he was always fun to watch. Possibly the best curveball I have seen.
Don't think, you can only hurt the ballclub.
If you can't play with integrity, don't play.

Sheets did pretty well for a starter who never bothered to develop a third pitch.

LF--They pick Braun.

I disagree.
Though they mention Ben Oglive, he is the choice.
And he did it clean!!

41 HR's (led league)
118 RBI's
.304 AVE
.563 SLG PCT
18 ASSISTS

One of my favorites!!

We can only assume Benji and his cohorts were clean , I have always suspected that Rose took the gambling ban because there was something much more sinister below the surface and it was likely his connection to steroid peddling mobsters .
