BASEBALL: Curtains for Sheets?

So Ben Sheets may be having elbow surgery that will knock him out for half the season. Looks like he played chicken with the owners and lost; unless this is the result of genuinely new medical information, Sheets would have been better served having the surgery in October and jumping on a 1-year deal rather than trying to bluff some team into signing him with a bum elbow.

Crank have you seen the budget draft on espn? http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3864280

Steve Phillips has the two best lines of the off-season...

Steve Phillips: I would just recommend avoiding Mo Vaughn, Roger Cedeno and Kevin Appier.

Steve Phillips: I will serve hard time before I vote for a Democrat. Although they are fond of bailouts, and I may need one.

It was obvious all the GMs thought Sheets was hurt. He wasn't getting injury-prone pitcher offers, he was getting injured pitcher offers.

The real question is why did he turn down arbitration?
