Open and shut
Baltimore manager Dave Trembley announced a new policy Sundat night and stuck to it Monday, when he said the Orioles wouldn’t use George Sherrill as their dedicated closer anymore. Trembley will now mix and match, using Chris Ray and Jim Johnson too.
“I’m going to play the ninth inning as a day-by-day situation and do what I think is best to try and win the game,” Trembley said Monday. “I think sometimes it depends on the score and also depends on who’s available and who’s pitching well. And I also think sometimes you have to go away from the norm a little when things aren’t going well for you. And right now, things aren’t going well for us. I think it’s important to do something different.”
