According to the Brewers training staff, Brewers Ace Ben Sheets is “probable” for his next start. An MRI revealed there is no tear and only a minor strain of the groin, so I think until he misses more than one start we should stay calm. Removing him from the game when the temperature is cold was precautionary and I think the right move this early in the season.
Also, while steve’s fantasy teams are being bombarded by injuries, mine are being bombarded by opposing batters. Last night, Trevor Hoffman cost me a save, and wasted Jake Peavy’s 7 IP, 16 K performance on a Stephen Drew walk off HR. Jonathan Broxton allowed a run, as did Joel Zumaya (2 ER in 0.2 IP, actually). Luckily for me, Chad Cordero kept his 5.79 ERA and 2.36 WHIP on the bench.
