Discussion: Ben Sheets

We haven't checked in on Ben Sheets for quite some time.  In fact, MLBTR's last update on the free agent right-hander was in early May, when he was spotted at the Rangers' ballpark visiting with pitching coach Mike Maddux.

The Rangers were the favorite to sign Sheets when the '09 season began, but have said recently that they're not likely to add payroll for an elite starter.  The 30-year-old began performing range-of-motion exercises in mid-June and hopes to game-ready by August.  Even if he's not healthy until September, you can bet contending teams will make a run at the four-time All-Star.

I thought it'd be interesting to poll the MLBTR community.  Which clubs seem like a good fit? Every major league team can use a front-line starter, but he'll probably want a shot at a ring and a relatively hefty contract.
