So, today George Sherrill pitched in the 9th when the Orioles were down by six runs. Since this was not by any stretch a clutch inning for the O's, it's safe to assume that he was pitching for the benefit of the scouts present, and that the Orioles are seriously considering trading Sherrill. That's good (I'm sure everyone here will agree).
In the inning, he faced five batters, gave up two singles, and struck out two. All three outs were against left-handed batters, while both hits were against right handers.
So, my question is, was this outing a good showing for the scouts, that will help increase Sherrill's value? Or does giving up to hits remind scouts that he's a mediocre closer?
