Sure Johnson will replace him? Baez has been a much better pitcher lately...

By Ben Nicholson-Smith [July 30 at 2:44pm CST]
2:44pm: MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports that the Dodgers acquired George Sherrill for Josh Bell and righty Steve Johnson.


I think Johnson gets the first crack at it. But it wouldn't shock me if it's a commitee.

Sure Baez has been a much better pitcher lately?

Baez in July: 5.23 ERA, 12 hits and 4 K's in 10.1 innings

Johnson hasn't been great either, but either way I think they've said before that they like to use Baez in situations that may require more than 1 inning.

Not really sure. I just looked at the ER's the past few games.

I'm pleased with the trade, all in all. The bullpen has been taxed and then some, which makes adding a solid MR a blessing. The only downside is Josh Bell could've been one of the crucial trade pieces used to make a keen offer for Halladay.

Seems like a good deal for both sides. Some O's fans mught be upset but it's a classic sell high scenario on a guy that clearly isn't going to be your closer in 2 years.
