The last pitch of the game was hardly a strike--it was nearly a foot outside of the plate. Guess the ump had a dinner date.

You know it's getting really old game after game when dave T goes out of his way to defend his players. His press conference today made me sick in my stomach.They asked him how can you explain the ineffectivness of both daniel and walker and he just said that he couldn't and don't ask any more questions concerning that.he said that his team played there hearts out and that they didn't lose they just got beat. What bullshit.Andy and dave t are the ones that keep running both those guy's game after game after game knowing what they are going to get. So tell me how didn't they lose that game dave when you have a staring pitcher that threw 95 pitches in 3 innings , gave up 9 hits, walked 3, and hit another batter. Tell me dave how did you team not lose that game when walker gave up the winning homerun to another lefthanded hitter that he is suppose to get out. Dave that defend the team to the death i attitude is getting really old and the ghost told everybody that they will win 12 more games they will be lucky to win 8 more games to match last years total.But don't worry daniel you are a lock to be in the 2009 rotation because you threw 6 shutout innings 2 weeks ago.

Release Walker and bring up young arms. What a bum and waste of money.. 7 homeruns hit by Lefties this year off this bum.

It appears that Daniel Cabrera's time as a MLB starting pitcher is nearing an end. Kinda sad really. But as Palmer said today on TV, his velocity has declined in the past couple years. Could be that he's slowed down to focus on strikes to gain control. Whatever, it's not working. The O's keep him until a better one comes along. That may be decades of course, since every pitcher that comes here seems to destroy themselves.

We might be able to trade Cabrera in the off season for a couple of low round middle age softball players.

I watched the game today, and there are a few things that can be taken from today's game. One, Jamie Walker is useless. The man received a ridiculous amount of money to essentially be a left-handed specialist and maybe pitch a little more. He has failed in his main mission and today's homer to Cano was a shot.
Two, Jim Palmer said it really well today, and I am glad that he is so critical of Daniel Cabrera, because someone needs to be. He said that on most teams, if you can't hold runners, can't field your position, can't throw strikes, and walk as many batters per nine innings as Daniel does, then you are in A-Ball working on those things, but for some reason, Cabrera gets the ball every five days. Here is a guy who no longer has any upside. He has led the league in walks, losses, hit batsmen or some combination of the above for the last 2 years. For five years, his upside has been that he is tall, never knew how to pitch, but was learning, and that he threw in the mid to upper 90's. If he could ever harness his control, that he would be a good pitcher. Alas, he has not learned how to throw in the strike zone, and his velocity is down in the low 90's with most of his hard stuff today around 89. There are better ways to spend his near 3 million dollar salary. He has had ample time to learn how to pitch and he is just like Ponson, some thug who could throw hard, and for whatever reason, that ability alone has players in starting rotations.
Three, Lou Montanez needs to be playing more. Payton plays his tail off, and his hustle is an inspiration, but the Orioles are so far out of contention now, and Payton is not in the future plans, that Montanez should start to see more time. I am fine with him making mistakes, but he has a tremendous amount of potential and his effort really is a pleasure to watch.

We will trade Daniel D.because in an Oriole uniform his line will always be IP 3 H 9 ER 6 BB 6 SO 2, ad nauseam. And after we trade him, some pitching coach will turn him into a consistent winner. Its happened countless times since '54 when the Birds came home.

No idea why walker is on this team and even more why this horrible manager uses him!

The Orioles did play bad this series they will have a better record then last year I will place a bet on that with anyone and as bad as they played could the umping have been any worse then this series crew.

O's need 4 SP for next year they have ONE Guthrie
Bob you might be wrong with 8 games.

Next series
CWS 3 wins O's 1
TAM 3 wins O's 0
BOS 3 wins O's 0
CLE 3 wins O's 1
MIN 3 wins O's 0
TOR 2 wins O's 1
NYY 3 wins O's 0
TAM 3 wins O's 0
TOR 1 wins O's 2

All could change if AM call up Bowie's Pitching Staff after their playoff. Bergesen , Berken , Herenandez & Tillman they are better than what the O' have right now.

Trembley does what management tells him to do. He talks to MacPhail, gives his input and does what he is supposed to do. He's the manager, not the president. That said, neither one of them ought to give Cabrera or Walker any more opportunities this year. I agree that DC needs to be in A ball -- for another organization. I like the guy, but, man, has this gotten old. Walker? Send him back to the trailer park he always talks about. Maybe he can get up a team.

I agree 110%! Even though he's been a pro for 9 seasons now, he may finally have figured it out. Why not give him 6 weeks to show what he's got? The team is, unfortunately, destined for last place :(

If Trembley puts Walker into a meaningful game again this year he should be fired on the spot. Send Cabrera back to the minors so he can get his head together and what's left of his arm. Trembley's defensiveness is becomming very offensive wo watch. Why must he bring in a new pitcher every inning until he finds one that is ineffective?
