Cabrera's MRI "clean"

Daniel Cabrera apparently has no structural damage in his elbow, but manager Dave Trembley said today that Cabrera is feeling some discomfort in his forearm near the elbow. The date of his next start depends on how he feels over the next few days.

"We'll see what we're going to do,'' Trembley said. "We might have to give him an extra day. Our think is, maybe he plays catch tomorrow and we see how he is."

Trembley also confirmed that Adam Jones and George Sherrill will be activated when the roster expand on Monday if all continues to go well with their rehab programs.

I know the orioles are relieved to get the good news. That means he gets the ball handed to him again on Saturday to go out and do what he does best , and that is to throw 100 pitches by the 4th inning, hit maybe 1 or 2 batters, throw 1 or 2 wild pitches. I bet dave t will sleep better tonight knowing that they have old reliable back. Peter i have never in any situation that i can remember seen somebody fail at something so many times then him and have somebody in this case the oriole organization continue to view him as part of the solution. In addition in all the years that i have watched and supported the home town team i have never been as frustrated with somebody as him almost to the point of actually rooting to see him fail so bad that they will have to eventually release him. I can't stand to watch any game the he starts because of that frustration

They needed to MRI his head. The guy simply doesn't seem to learn. He still can't field his position. That doesn't require much skill, just effort. The lack of effort seems to show up in his pitching. Too many careless, frustrated moments.
5+ yrs later and no improvement. Still an era over 5.00.

bob lancione--Were you able to stand watching Daniel Cabrera pitch when he beat the Yankees three times earlier this season?

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
