If you think Jack Wilson was happy to make the upward jump in the standings from Pittsburgh to Seattle, think how ex-Mariner George Sherrill feels todcay.
Sherill’s been traded from Baltimore to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and while he may not close, he’s moved from an abysmal team to one with a shot at the post-season.
Sherrill, remember, was the Seattle reliever found in the independent leagues by scout Charlie Kerfeld, who’s now with Philadelphia. He was part of the trade for Erik Bedard, so Sherrill has never had an August or September pennant race in his career.
He’s got one now. Enjoy them, George. They can be few and far between.
