Danny Boy Kills The Royals; Bynum Returns and Makes an Impact...

People have complained, whined and bitched about the Orioles this week as their nice start came to an abrupt and complete halt; however, tonight showed why we as fans have a lot to look forward to with the new look Baltimore franchise. Daniel Cabrera won his third game — a complete game — thanks to an excellent effort by the tall righty, and Nick Markakis’ three run-homer.

Back to Daniel, the kid is now focused and in a way — now in the zone. Granted, we are not only even 1/2 of the way through the season, but if number 40 keeps this up, he will no doubt be the man we hoped he’ll be. Then again, he may be dangled on the market too.

I’m going to be cautiously optimistic, but so far, so good. A good start in 2008 for Daniel does not erase several mediocre years, but he right now seems to be a different pitcher and is now actually pitching with a plan, and not throwing. If he keeps it up, Kranitz needs to be given major props for his work.

He used groundballs and strikeouts (7) to get himself through in Kansas City.

Finally, how about Freddie Bynum? As much we all should never wish bad things upon anyone, but I am relieved that Freddie is in for Luis. Hernandez would make a fine backup and defensive substitution; however, if you take away last year’s numbers, there’s a reason why he should not be a ML starter, just by the stats alone.
