Today's featured comment comes from Bill ths 85:
Bill's take: Yeah, as exciting as it was to watch our beloved Os come back against the best closer in baseball, it was that painful to watch Sherrill squander away the effort of his teammates. Does anyone still believe that Sherrill is still the best option as closer? His ERA has been ballooning while Johnson has managed to keep his under 2.00--give Johnson a chance!
My take: I still think so, for a couple of reasons that aren't in any way related to Johnson, who has been great and looks like he could fit into the role. First, I think it's a little early to quit on a guy who probably would finish second or third if you took an Orioles MVP vote. Second, demoting him would seriously diminish his trade value. Last night was tough to swallow, but let's not give in to the heat of the moment and forget everything this guy has done.
