Who in the World is George Sherrill?

Where did he grow up, where did he come from, and why at 31 after years of not closing is he now all of a sudden close to the lead in the American League in saves -- and as a lefty, too? And for the surprising Baltimore Orioles!

Click here for information but not necessarily clues.

Was Sherrill suppressed because he didn't have a blue-chip pedigree? Often-injured? Is he a late bloomer? Did he have a miraculous later-in-career velocity transplant, a la Jim Morris of The Rookie?

Are the barriers to entry to becoming a closer lower than they've ever been? Is that good for the hypothetical, average relief pitcher? How many teams are confident in their current closers? How many say novenas every night for them? How many are looking to change their closers?

At any rate, George Sherrill appears to be a great story.
