Sheets To Test Free Agency

Brewers ace Ben Sheets is in the midst of a monster contract year, and he's planning on testing the open market after the season.  The Brewers might've had a chance to sign him to an extension, but GM Doug Melvin decided to pass.  After all, Sheets hasn't topped 160 innings since '04.  He's made most of his starts in '08 as we near the halfway point.

Sheets earns $11MM in '08, and he'll be looking for a raise this time around.  Assuming he stays healthy for the rest of the season, I could see a contract similar to Jason Schmidt's three-year, $47MM deal.  So far we haven't heard anything about his possible preferred destinations.
