Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports reports that Ben Sheets will sign with the Oakland A’s today.
I was actually anticipating the Dodgers signing Sheets in a Randy Wolf-esque ‘post-New Year, after the dust settles and we can get ‘im cheap’ kind of maneuver.
Sheets = good pitcher, former Olympian, first round pick (10th overall) and four-time All-Star. That said, he’s VERY injury prone. But, dang – just like Wolf, he would have ended up as the Dodgers ersatz Ace.
