Gameday Thread: O's at Yankees, 04/22

Daniel Cabrera, RH Shawn Chacon, RH (1-1, 5.40) (1-1, 8.03)

Game time is 1:05 on CSN and YES.

The O's have won three straight and now stand a half-game behind the Red Sox for the AL East lead. I'm pretty sure we're going to win the World Series six times this season.

It has not been a successful season for Shawn Chacon thus far. He made two starts, neither very good, then had his turn in the rotation skipped to keep Johnson and Mussina on five-day schedules. He did make two relief appearances, also not successful.

Cabrera finally had a decent start last time out, giving up one run, unearned, on five hits over seven innings against the Angels. He struck out six and walked just one, a vast improvement from walking nine the start before and seven the start before that one. Really, who knows what Cabrera is going to show up? Who knows what Cabrera is going to show up the rest of his career?

Oh, and is anyone still uneasy with Chris Ray as the closer?
