Strange to See…

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

I must admit, it’s strange to see Ben Sheets pitching in another team’s uniform. Then again, it’s strange seeing Ben Sheets actually pitching.

RFB archives will show that I haven’t always been the kindest to Milwaukee’s former ace, but I do wish him the best in 2010. And frankly, Sheets signing with a non-contending team that plays in an equally small market AND in a different league makes it that much easier to root for him.

So for God’s sake, win 20 games, Big Ben! It’ll put the A’s 22-140 on the season… but will still put a smile on my face. Earn that $10 M salary in the — likely — 90 innings you’ll pitch. Teach your “mechanics” to players that will (hopefully) one day be traded to Milwaukee at the deadline.

I’ll hold to the claim that I’m glad Ben Sheets isn’t a part of the Brewers this season. However, seeing him wearing new colors, surprisingly, feels a bit odd to me.

But best of luck Ben… but not the kind of luck that will bring you to an actual contender in 2011, yet luck nonetheless.

And if he happens to take public transit, I hope he doesn’t encounter this guy.
