The Baltimore Orioles today faced an old friend down in Fort Lauderdale today, and like the old cliches goes -- the more things change, the more they stay the same. In the end, the Orioles downed the Washington Nationals, 6-2, as they beat their former compadre and had a little fun with him too on the bases.
Cabrera -- a frustrating presence to Oriole fans over the years -- went two inning and gave up a run. He looked shaky on the mound as he walked two and struck out two; furthermore, the Orioles -- who may know him better than anyone else, perhaps better than himself -- stole four bases against him. Like it has been said over and over, Cabrera has the physical skills to pitch; however, he's not learned the game at all, and it's now up to the Nationals to get him to be the pitcher that he can be.
