Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

April 14, 2009 | Glenn Clark

The “Baltimore” jerseys looked just as good as I hoped they would. Koji Uehara made Andruw Jones look like a future Hall of Famer again (maybe the whole L.A. think WAS a fluke after all), but everything is okay if the game ends in the win column like it did last night.

I’ll also add this. I’ve never been overly sold on George Sherrill as a closer. Frankly, I think finding a great closer is a 1-in-a-thousand type proposition. But I really don’t think George Sherrill is a great closer. I guess time will tell in the end.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
