Sheets' Chance at 2005 Return: "Pretty Slim"

Ben Sheets himself via

"Pretty slim, bottom line," he said. "Fifteen days of nothing. It doesn't matter if you're better after that or not. It might be better, might not. There are five weeks left in the season.

"You can come back for one meaningless start," he said. "I wish the game would be meaningful, and that's still very slim [that he would be ready to pitch]."

Ben Sheets tore his right latissimus dorsi muscle in the eighth inning of Friday night's game. An MRI Saturday afternoon showed the tear to be worse than expected. Doctors and Sheets himself expect him to be done for the season, without, of course, completely ruling out a possible return.

From everyone at, thanks for the great season Ben. We'll get 'em next year!
