Astros Players Hope To Recruit Sheets

According to Jose de Jesus Ortiz, Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt plans to make a recruiting pitch to Ben Sheets.  Sheets will be a free agent after the season.  Lance Berkman would love to see Sheets sign with the Astros as well.

Pairing Sheets with Oswalt would certainly change the look of the Astros, who could slot Wandy Rodriguez at #3 or #4 and sign an additional free agent starter.  As with most free agent signings, Sheets carries plenty of risk.  He's already thrown 162 innings this year, his best since '04.  Has he shaken off the injury bug?

Sheets should get at least three years, and four is feasible.  $16-17MM per year sounds about right.
