Cabrera and Uninspired Baseball...

Well, it was another loss at the Yard on Saturday as they lost to the Oakland A's, 5-1. The loss was not nearly as bad what the Orioles experienced the night before, but it was still shocking.

Daniel Cabrera -- perhaps the model of inconsistency that you could ever experience on the mound -- only lasted a little more than two innings in which he gave up two earned runs. However, he walked six and had already thrown 84 pitches before all was said and done.

At this point, I would not be surprised if there was something wrong with him and if he might just be shit down for the rest of 2008. Moreover, his future with the organization has now must be in doubt, as he seems to not be improving at all despite his strong start to the year.

Alfredo Simon, who was recently signed by Baltimore, threw hard, but also served up two solo home runs, and showed you have to locate your pitches, just not try to blow it by people.

Otherwise than that, it was yet another lifeless game, and it seems that the Orioles are just playing out the stretch hoping for October to come.

Oakland hit three solo home runs -- one by Jack Hannahan, two by Jack Cust -- as well, an impressive performance by the 7-14 Greg Smith who looked like a Cy Young candidate on the mound against a Baltimore team that struggled at the plate.
