Red Sox Talking Ben Sheets

Red Sox raising ante for Santana by Sean McAdam

Yesterday, indications surfaced that the Sox have also had discussions with the Milwaukee Brewers regarding Ben Sheets. Sheets, 29, was 12-5 with a 3.82 ERA for the Brewers last year and has won in double figures in six of his seven seasons in the big leagues, but due to injuries hasn’t made more than 24 starts in any of the last three seasons.

I’m sure the Sox have done a lot of talking already this off-season but Sheets is one of the more interesting ones. Sheets could be great and could come relatively cheap. He’s had an injury bug for a long time so he’s a risk.

The best part about this kind of deal and all the others being discussed, is the excitement that comes from looking forward to the potential Red Sox team of next year. And knowing Theo and the front office, any trade that gets done will be good for the team. So a major deal would serve to motivate and excite next years team and fans. Meaning better results from the players and more money spent by excited Red Sox fans. It can only mean good things if the Sox finalize a deal.
