Sheets looks good

Well, Ben made his rehab start at Huntsville last night, and it went very well.

The numbers to me are almost irrelevant. The big thing that jumped out at me, though, is he was throwing his fastball in the mid-90s, topping out at 96. I remember a couple of years ago when he started the season and his fastball had jumped from low 90s to 95, 96, 97. He was literally blowing away hitters, and combined with his outstanding curve and changeup, he dominated. That's the Ben Sheets I can't wait to see, and I think it says a lot for how his body feels that he's pumping it up that high in a rehab start. Maybe all the rumors are true and his back/shoulder feels great. I'm definitely looking forward to April 16th.
