Today's Starting Pitchers GS IP ERA WHIP BAA BB K W-L
Daniel Cabrera - RH 5 30.2 4.40 1.34 .229 14 19 2-0
Javier Vazquez - RH 5 30.2 4.40 1.37 .268 9 30 3-2

Game time is 2:05 on MASN. I'm really looking forward to this series ending, since I've been able to see one game in my apartment and the other ones I've had to go watch at bars, which I generally hate doing. I have managed to find a couple other O's fans around here, but they're not the sharpest bulbs in the crayon drawer, let's say that.

If Cabrera keeps up his recent success, Z is going to moidalize me in the Cabrera Bowl. And I'm cool with that. I am still skeptical, but he's just been a totally different guy the last couple of outings.

There's also this nugget to ponder: Cabrera stinks at Camden Yards, with a 6.75 ERA, 1.75 WHIP, and 11-to-10 BB-to-K ratio. On the road, he's 1.84/0.89 and 3-to-9.

Cabrera and Vazquez are having eerily similar seasons so far, with Vazquez walking less and striking out more and giving up more hits, and Cabrera doing the opposite of that, all leading to identical innings pitched in identical starts and identical ERAs with a 0.03 difference in WHIP.
