Gameday Thread: O's at Rangers, 08/06

     Daniel Cabrera, RH              John Wasdin, RH
     (8-9, 4.66)                     (0-1, 4.35)

Game time is 4:05 on FOX.

Aha. Ahahaha. Ahahahahaha. The Rangers are starting...John Wasdin! John Wasdin!! Ahahahaha! Ahahaha! The quintessential last pitcher on the depth chart, the inning-chewing scrub of a long reliever, the former first round pick. John Wasdin! Former Oriole John Wasdin.

And the amazing thing is, this is Wasdin's best season since 1999, when he was similarly sort of useful. If you're starting John Wasdin, you are not going to make a playoff run.

As for Cabrera, he's pretty much awesome. Outside of some occasional fits of wildness, of course. You can still never tell quite which Cabrera will show up, but the Hyde Cabrera isn't quite as bad as it was before.

This is all asking for Wasdin to throw a gem and Cabrera to get shelled, I know, but whatever.
