Cubs Could be Close to Signing Ben Sheets... Update 1?

Update 7:30: This is subjected as just a rumor, nothing else. I wish it wasn't.

According to a report out of Toronto, the Cubs all but sign pitcher Ben Sheets. Sheets who is expected to throw for mutiple teams on Tuesday to show he can still throw the ball. Sheets who missed all of 2009 with a should injury has announce his self healthy.

Jim Hendry just said at the convention that the Cubs are not in the market for a starting pitcher. That is so BS.

I hope this is true, it could be a rumor but also true because Sheets said he would love to play with the Cubs. The Cubs maybe could sign him to a 1 year deal worth 3 million (base salary) with 3-4 million in incentives. That is what I think, hoping they sign him.

I will keep you posted as this could be good news. You won't here anything until at least tomorrow when he throws for teams.
