On Ben Sheets: Buyer Beware

If you’re wondering why Ben Sheets remains unsigned in the latter half of January, take a look at this video which accurately portrays the pitching mechanics and inherent injury risks typical of Sheets’ style of play:

That’s one ugly mess that I wouldn’t want to clean up, let alone dish out millions of dollars to for a multi-year deal that would most likely end in pain and suffering (see Carl Pavano & the Yankees).

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Sorry all. I didn’t realize how disgusting that was going to be. I watched it several times and wasn’t phased but that’s probably because I was just put on waivers by my (now ex) girlfriend so I was feeling mighty disgusted already.

    Very scary video … It made me feel how all Yankee fans felt about Carl Pavano over the last four “disastrous” years he was under contract with the NY Yankees !!! … Anyway, “Congratulations” [again] to you and Allen on being #1 on the latest Leader’s List !!! … Jimmy [27NYY], “BY&L” … http://baseballtheyankeesandlife.mlblogs.com/

    Sorry to hear that you got released, Jeff. As someone whose own personal life is a post-apocalyptic wasteland of failed relationships, I’ve been there many times myself. If it makes you feel any better, I hear Erin Andrews is still available:) Um, it might help if you disguise yourself as Tim Tebow, though.

    Jen — Yeah, the sound is kind of awful.
    Jimmy — Let’s hope he’s not Pavano Pt. 2. The Unreliable.
    Jane — Jay who? (Haha)
    Elizabeth — You’ve come on strong. You’re welcome around these virtual walls. Keep comin’ back.
    Erin — Ah! Tebow again! I’m always going up against Tebow!

    I wasn’t grossed out (I guess my mom is right; I do have a cast iron stomach). But, I was glad I watched in the daylight. It was very scary and could have given me nightmares.
    Being put on waivers in not so bad. Often times, you land with a winning team instead.

    Wow, I wish they had this video a few years back, we might not have signed Hideo Nomo.

    Great job finding this video. It is wild hoe you can sometimes find the wildest stuff when just trolling the Internet looking for things today.
