Cabrera and Nats: Perfect match

If you're waiting for me to bash Daniel Cabrera, you're going to be disappointed. I think he'll be fine with the Nats, who reportedly signed him to a one-year contract this weekend. You can lop a half-run off his ERA with the move to the National League and he suddenly looks a lot like Tim Redding, except with a Curt Schilling's-worth of untappable talent.

The thing that I'm happiest about, however, is the fact that we'll get to see him all spring. I'm guessing he pitches against the Orioles once or twice during the exhibition season, which should be entertaining. The O's and Nationals play each other six times during the preseason, including back-to-back games in Norfolk and Washington, D.C. the weekend before Opening Day.
