Dan Cabrera looked sharp yesterday in an 8-0 win over the champs, throwing five one-hit innings with four strikeouts and just one walk. If he cuts down his walks, he could be really good. I'm getting cautiously optimistic about Cabrera. I didn't like him last season because that K:BB rate was just obscene, but he's been really good this spring: 12 1/3 IP, 3 R, 10 H, 9 K, 1 BB. If he performs this season anywhere near that, he'll be a stablizing force.
Then today, we lost to the Mets 5-1, with Andres Galarraga hitting his third spring jack off of Rodrigo Lopez in the first, and Ramon Castro getting his second in the sixth against James Baldwin, who looks like he's losing any grip he had on a roster spot.
Matt Ginter got the win for the Mets.
We now stand at 8-8 coming down the home stretch of spring training, which is really neither here nor there, so I don't know why I'm even thinking about our record.
Other than the games, it's been a pretty quiet couple of days. I did have a fantasy draft yesterday, which was as usual one of the most fun times of the year. I was going to go nutty and draft Tejada fourth overall, but he went third. Can you believe that? I was going to draft Sosa in the eighth, but someone else did. Who are these people? But I got Mora, and that's the only Oriole I got. I have two Nats (Guillen and Livan Hernandez) - try to forgive me, Pete. I am a competitive man.
