The Game Last Night; White Sox Topple Orioles, 5-1


I’m at RFK covering the Cubs vs. Nationals for the DC Sports Box, so I’ll keep my post brief.

The Orioles lost last night 5-1 in Chicago to the White Sox. Daniel Cabrera, who has the makeup to be one of the best starters in the majors – if he can ever be consistent and get his head together.

Considering Cabrera has been in the majors for a few years now, this is as good as he’ll get?

He can be so amazing, but yet, more often that not, he frustrates the hell out of you.

Meanwhile, the starter for the White Sox, Javier Vazquez who has had an up and down year, dominated the Orioles last night and gave his only via a Kevin Millar homer.

The best pitcher probably in the minors for the Orioles, Garrett Olson gets the start today in Chicago (the article reports Mora play today, and Scott Williamson is on the mend). He was brought up because of the injury to Steve Trachsel, but hopefully he’ll impress, and can get a little more than a cameo this week.


The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Examiner, and Washington Post has a recap of the game last night.

Roch Kubatko has his thoughts on Daniel Cabrera.

As noted, Garrett Olson is starting for the Orioles tonight in Chicago. As well, The Washington Post has more on him and his expected day later on, so does the Orioles MLB site.

Peter Schmuck believes in light of the Orioles’ failures this season, the front office duo of Mike Flanagan and Jim Duquette deserve high marks for finding Jeremy Guthrie and Brian Burres.

The Baltimore Examiner has a piece on O’s minor leaguer, Wally Crancer and reports that the Aberdeen Ironbirds are stumbling out of the gate as their season began a few weeks ago.
