It just seems preposterous that Cabrera, with a 6-1 lead at the time, would open the door like that. He already had a runner on second after Bobby Abreu doubled and there were no outs. Given the circumstances after the hit-batsmen, I certainly believe Orioles manager Dave Trembley when he said that he was going to pull Cabrera. Two runners on, no out, Cabrera just past 100 pitches, eighth inning. If you seen many Orioles games you know what that means, cue relief pitcher Jim Johnson. And that's exactly what happened. George Sherrill was going to pitching the ninth so the fact that it got exciting at the end had little to do with the ejection.
