O, Danny Boy

For any fan who has seen Daniel Cabrera pitch, you all know he's got the potential to be something special. On some nights, he can look like Cy Young and a top tier starter; however, some nights, he looks like he's still going through on-the-job-training.

In 2007, a season where the organization hoped that he'd become the man most in baseball figured he would be, he seemed to take step back backwards. He became nothing more than an innings-eater and labored through a lot of tough situations on the mound.

Seeing him interact regularly with some friends of mine after games on occasion, he's a great guy and could be a beacon PR-wise for the Orioles if he was ever given the chance.

However, to get to that point, he has to improve on the mound, and after being in the league several seasons, he needs to take the step forward.

In the end, he'll be judged by his win-loss record, and in 2008, we'll learn if he's part of the problem or part of the solution. If he can get over the hump, he could be an imposing mainstay on a young team that could be on the rise.

With all his physical attributes, he could be something special, but his time could be running out in Baltimore if he does not show that he can be a consistent major league pitcher.
