...Ben Sheets just signed an extension with the Brewers. Four years, $38.5M. So much for him being a Yankee/Red Sock/A by the end of the season. As sad as it is that he'll be a Brewer for another few years, I just gained new respect for him...if he became a FA this fall he'd easily get $11M/year with the Yanks or Mets or Sox.
On the topic of pitchers...it's feast or famine for former short-term Red Sox pitchers...Nomo got rocked, but Astacio, Chen, Suppan are smokin'. WTF?
