Roy-O Recruiting Sheets

Roy has decided to pick up the phones and do a little recruiting himself, presumably to make sure he isn't the only solid one-fifth of the rotation next season, by talking to his buddy Ben Sheets.

Sheets is going to command $10-15 million, so that means getting rid of Tejada, Wigginton and Valverde for the payroll limitations which have apparently already been set by Run-DMc.

Ken Rosenthal says this about Sheets: "If the Brewers fail to offer Sheets arbitration, it will be a clear indication that club officials are concerned about his ability to stay healthy in 2009. And remember, the Brewers know Sheets better than any other team."
