I was able to catch up with Blue Crabs Manager Patrick Osborn today and ask him about the resigning of his closer Jim Ed Warden.
"It's comforting knowing Jim Ed will be back for another year. Not only do I think he's the best closer in the league, but his character and respect for teammates equals his pitching ability. He's a luxury to have and he solidifies the back end of a bullpen that I expect will be very good again." said Osborn
