O’s start Home Opener with a W

Day baseball is great, unless you have to work. I missed the game today and I’m still upset about that whole aspect of adulthood.  Working=missing games.

But it was nice to come home and see the boxscore. Daniel Cabrera’s now had 2 good todays. His loss in Minny was rough, but today he was dyn-O-mite.

7 2/3  innings, 7 hits, 2 runs (both earned), 5 K’s and….wait for it… NOT ONE SINGLE FREAKIN’ WALK! No walks. None. Days like today make me think that this is going to be the season that we finally see Cabrera getting it.

The offense is staying steady with 6 runs. Mil-LAH hit another homer today, making it 2 in 2 days. Melvin Mora went 2 for 4 with 1 RBI today. I’m feeling alot better about him now than I did before the season started. Is Mora a declining player? Sure, he’s getting older and he’s not going to be the same player we saw 2 or 3 years ago..BUT he can definately be better than he was last year. Brian Roberts and Miguel Tejada also went 2 for 4 with an RBI apiece. Nice to see Brian get something going.

Check out the Oriole Post for some great pictures from today’s action.

Now we’re at 3-4 and I really can’t complain. Yeah, we had that rough start against the Twins, but we almost swept the Yankees and today we handcuffed the AL Champs. And hey, we don’t have Jay Payton or Ramon Hernandez yet. I think everyone’s stepping off their ledges and back into their houses at this point.

Tomorrow we get to see Nate Robertson vs. Jaret Wright. I’m giving Wright a mulligan over last week, but let’s just be glad that Cabrera gave the bullpen a rest today.
