George Sherrill defends "ex teammates"

Recommended Posts

It's really ncie hearing somethign like this from a player that was on the Orioles. We hear the usual "what a poorly run organization" or "no attitude" about the O's.

It's ncie to see this from Sherrill, and he's totally right. This writer sounds like an (insert your favorite expletive here).

Agreed 100%.

In a L.A. Times column in Los Angeles this morning, Ex Orioles closer George Sherrill took exception to a joke by Times Page 2 columnist T.J. Simers(a mostly tongue and cheek sarcastic style column).

In the column, Simers jokingly told Sherrill that the Orioles were eliminated from contention BEFORE the season began.

To which Sherrill replied(with an apparent expletive)"Those are my ex teammates and friends you are talking about".

He then blew off Simers and ended the interview.

Just thought youd like to know.

If you werent a fan of George in the past...maybe you should be now.

Way To Go Sheriff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:wedge::):clap3:

I love him!!!!:)

We need to try to get Flat Breezy back here. We need guys like him! :cussing:

To Mr. Simers: perhaps if you'd show Mr. Sherrill some respect instead of talking to him like some imbecile, he'd grant you an interview. He's not obligated to speak with you or tolerate your drivel, including characterizing him as "Lonesome". How about several of us e-mail you and call you "Idiot" Simers?

I love how you think!!!!!!!!!!:wedge:

I think we should ALL e mail this guy:mad:

GS is awesome. :) That's great for him to stand up for his former teammates. That reporter sounds like a massive tool and depending on how well liked GS is by his current teammates (and it sounds like they all like him a lot), that tool may have a hard time talking to any of the other Dodgers for a while (especially the bullpen guys).

Rock on Flat Breezy! :D

Your a no talent hack. How about that, no obscenities to upset your fragile sensibilities. They say "those that can't do teach", but in your case I guess it should read "those that can't do write about others who can".

Your team is lucky to have a stand up guy like Sherrill.

That poor paper. They get rid of their good columnist (J.A. Adande), and are stuck with Simers and Bill Plashke. And Simers makes Plashke look like John Steadman, which is hard to do.

And 1983, I think you're lucky you got that positive a response.

Not that your message was particularly well spoken, but his was even worse. That's all he had to say? I'm betting he's had to respond to a lot of this recently.

I have always liked George once he donned an O's uniform and always will after. He is a very standup guy and I would take him back in a heartbeat. This just illustrated it perfectly.

I may not be eloquent, but I did get my point across. He should have taken his issue up with George. He should not have tried to disparage the intelligence of a man in a National paper because of a personal slight.

Just my opinion.

I agree 100% with what you said about him and what you say now.

It's just sad that sometimes no talent hacks can get jobs at reuputable places.

    • No wonder you liked Bedard. Best media Bedard exchange ever: Bedard:  Okay, I'm only answering three questions. Media member:  Why only three? Bedard:  That's one. Means is off to a good start this year but I'd like to see him put together a stretch of 6 innings+ games.  Right now he's got two 7 inning starts that sandwich a 4.2 and a 5.0 inning start.  He didn't have his best stuff in either start but he was able to battle, I will give him credit there.  I'm not saying he needs to go 7 innings of shutout ball each time out but I think he's gotta get past the 5th each time out if we want to look at him as an ace.  IMO he's able to give you a gem each time out, but he's also able to give you a 4 or 5 inning start with an escalated pitch count.
    • PFF Brown 76.5 vs AV 74.6. There is the age difference but he also had to pass protect a ton more due to the Steelers pass happy offense and running issues. For 1 or 2 years your getting a pretty comparable player.

    • Just one of Jack Whites early bands.  
    • No, I’ve probably said crazier. I didn’t say it wouldn’t improve, I said I doubt it will, and i said that even if it gets back to his career 89 WRC, it won’t compensate for his defense. That’s what I said. And that’s not crazy.  
    • I like him too. And he won’t be traded unless he nets a huge return, but I think he’s going to be increasingly valuable.
    • Zero chance he gets that.  He isn’t that good and it’s late in the offseason..guys signing now are lucky to get much more than 3M.
