MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers manager Ned Yost has a direct challenge to opening-day starter Ben Sheets.
But Yost's statements could easily apply to the rest of the Brewers this season.
They need to turn potential into the reality of a playoff run.
Sheets seems healthy going into the season opener today against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
But Sheets has made on 39 starts the last two seasons after a variety of injuries.
If the Brewers are to end a 25-year playoff drought in its 25th year, they need to rely on Sheets.
Yost says Sheets has always had that potential, but now he's got to go out and show what he's capable of doing.
