Closer confirmations

Rotoworld reports that the Orioles today officially named George Sherrill their opening-day closer, making me an idiot for drafting Jamie Walker in my Bloggers League. (Although, in defense, Mike told me to.)

Also, by the end of the week, the Cubs will announce who will open their season as the team's closer, and the odds-on favorite is Kerry Wood. (Of course, the odds are even better that he'll crumple to the ground in excruciating pain somewhere in the vicinity of April 20th.)

You're not the idiot (nor me). The Orioles are.

Next time I'll wait until March 18 to do all the draft guides, and I'll be able to avoid this problem!
