"Daniel Cabrera, who leads the AL in walks (73), wild pitches (14) and hit batters (17)"

Cabrera can win the trple crown of 'having no idea where his pitches are going'.

ORIOLES WIN! Kevin Millar hit his 20th home run. Melvin Mora went 3 for six, and hot his TEAM -LEADING 81st RBI. F**K all you Melvin Mora/Kevin Millar haters! GO ORIOLES!

Montanez is hitting .474. He was on track to win the triple crown at Bowie. I don't care who sits, well maybe not Markakis, but he has to play and not every other game either.

Hear, hear, Donald. The man was the Cubs' number 1 pick in 2002, 4th overall I believe. He's not some journeyman, but a highly touted prospect who seems to be coming into his own at 26. And 26 is the new 22.

Reality Check, that's called being effectively wild. Who's gonna want to dig in against a guy like that? Pedro was the same way until he figured it out, and he still dusted guys whenever he wanted. I have no problem with him drilling guys as long as we won, which we did tonight.

Montanez is swinging the bat really well! I think if the Os just stick to the rebuilding, I think we'll be better than the 'best last place team in baseball' next year.

Winston- 48-56 and a 4.95 ERA lifetime. Oh, a pending suspension. Effectively wild? He has no idea what he is doing. Comparing him to Pedro? You must be high. Pedro was 10-5 his first season. Has always has 2 to 3 times as many Ks as walks. He always knew how to pitch. He used the inside of the plate to intimate people. Cabrera uses the fear of getting hit in the head because he is pissed at the umpire, or because some one just hit a HR off him, or maybe that he just balked, or threw a wild pitch, or forgot to cover first, to throw at some one.
