Ben Sheets had a very good rehab start today, striking out nine batters in 5 2/3 innings, and has his eyes set on a return to major league action against the Mets on Sunday:
"I think there's a chance in five days, but there's four days in between. We'll see how everything feels," Sheets said. "I'd like to pitch Sunday in New York."
You sure you want that start, Ben? New York in April, against the first place Mets? (I can't believe I just wrote that). Wouldn't you rather pitch Monday, in warm weather Houston?
