Braves Injury News: Ben Sheets to Retire After Today's Start

Ben Sheets was the inspirational comeback story of the year. Or at least it seemed that way. He was phenomenal in his first five starts since the Atlanta Braves coaxed him out of retirement. Then his shoulder started wearing down. He gave up 15 runs in his last three starts before being sent to the DL. It was supposed to be a stint that would just allow him to get some rest...
