Thoughts and Pictures from Daniel Cabrera at the ESPN Zone this Afternoon...

On a unseasonably cool summer & overcast afternoon, fans got to meet fireball ptcher Daniel Cabrers, as held a Q&A & autopgraph session at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Friday.

The place was packed as there was a standing room only crowd in the facility as Daniel Cabrera questions from fans about the Orioles and also off the field items.

Although he may be large, in charge and dominating on the mound throwing heat or at times throwing inside or towards a batter to intimidate; however, fans saw a far different side of Daniel than they are used to - a lighter, funny and very engaging one.

All in all, he is extremely likeable, and very personable. I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly suprised with his demeanor and the way he handled himself.

I walked away very impressed with him, and almost to the point where you felt like you knew him.

The Q&A portion went on for a good half-hour, and fans who were able to play hooky from work or visit the ESPN Zone during their lunch hour got to get their memorabilia signed and get some face time with Daniel.

Danny Cabrera is a great guy. Very personable and caring. I'm hopeful that he will turn this season around in the second half.

I'm a 6 year old girl with cancer. Daniel was very nice to me when I met him. There should be more baseball players like him who take time for the fans.

Anon 1 -- Thanks. I was very surprised how open, engaging and funny he was; I don't know why.

He has all the stuff in the world to be top flight pitcher.

I just think he needs to get an effective third pitch, and be consistent. At times it looks like he's throwing, rather than pitching, especially in tough situations.

If he can mix his stuff, use his height to an advantage and be solid - he's a #1 starter for sure.


Anon 2 - Thanks for the comment. He was a class act to the fans that day, and the best of luck to you.
