Ben Sheets needs one more year for his pension

15 Comments

Stuff you don’t think about much: ballplayers need ten years of service time in order to get a major league pension.  As Susan Slusser noted yesterday, however, Ben Sheets only has nine years, service time, which could provide the incentive to undergo another arduous rehab process and pitch again.

Or maybe Sheets will find a way to scrape by on the $52,218,000 he’s made in salary over those nine years.  Could go either way, really.
