George Sherrill Officially Named Closer in Baltimore

Ending weeks of speculation Orioles' manager, Dave Trembley, named George Sherrill the official closer closer to start the 2008 season.


Those of you who drafted Sherrill can finally breathe a bit easier knowing you locked up a closer. Sherrill will be a fine closer but save opportunities will be few and far between on such a mediocre team. Think the A.L.'s version of Matt Capps. Figure at best between 25-30 saves, but numbers that would be indicative of someone with closer to 35-40 saves.

We detailed the potential impact of this decision a bit earlier in an FSE article.
