Too bad the Orioles are off today. I hate to see another opportunity for a rain delay go to waste.

Camden Yards is the only ballpark where the groundscrew is taught how to roll up the tarp and pair off the animals.

Daniel Cabrera has walked 60 batters and thrown 13 wild pitches.

Some guys would call that a career. Cabrera calls it the third inning.

I understand the frustration with his lapses in control, but that's too much talent to surrender to another team. Just ask the batters he faces.

Better to keep working with him, whether it's here or in the minors. Just don't trade him.

I still envision a rotation in the not-too-distant future that includes Cabrera, Erik Bedard, Adam Loewen and Hayden Penn.

Anyone else wondering why the Diamondbacks would eat $22 million of Russ Ortiz's contract?

It was so bad, I would have sent it back to the kitchen.

Not the Diamondbacks, though. They swallowed hard after he made only six starts this year.

I won't let the day pass without another David Segui reference.

During a phone conversation yesterday that included mention of a recent Peter Schmuck column, Segui explained that, yes, doctors do exist in Kansas City. But he also has a home in the Miami area, and the doctor who performed his surgery in 2003 resides there.

He conceded that the doctors in Kansas City don't exactly have deep backgrounds in hGH. But they do know where to get a really good steak.

Who leads the International League in saves? Julio Manon with 16.

Does this mean the Orioles should bring him back to the majors? Not unless he's going to throw more strikes than he did the first time.

Ozzie Guillen has named Toronto's John Gibbons and Cleveland's Eric Wedge as coaches for next month's All-Star Game.
