Another stupid sportswriter

Now this isn't a typo...just horrid knowledge of the game...

The last two starts for Sheets help to illustrate his true importance to a somewhat untested Brewers rotation. Since returning from the disabled list Aug. 29, Sheets has drawn his turn against Carlos Zambrano and Roy Oswalt -- the respective aces for the Cubs and Astros.

Whereas the pressure might be felt by a younger hurler to match the other team's ace -- even at this late stage of the season -- it's the exact job Sheets was signed to do with the Brewers.

"It feels like we picked up a big free agent for the run here," Milwaukee outfielder Geoff Jenkins said. "Every team has got injuries. It's one thing to lose a position player, or this or that. When it's your ace, that's a big deal. It's obviously a huge push for us to get him back.

This writer obviously didn't know much at all about Ben Sheets, a career Brewer, and took Geoff Jenkins' quote literally.  What an idiot.
