what are the stats after K I looked up on a link from here and ESPN stats and could not find them fg, etc..

thanks

They are being funny, or so they think.

Since DCab and Johnson are so tall, they filled the rest of the line with basketball stats (field goal %, free throw percentage, rebounds, blocked shots, etc).

Just an attempt at humor on yahoo's part.

I watched a few innings of that game, and the Nationals' broadcasters were very critical of Cabrera. One of them said that Cabrera has been in the major leagues for six years and is still a thrower, not a pitcher(where have we heard that before?).

A Giants' broadcaster said that Cabrera loses focus when he pitches from the stretch, and that his problems are mental. With all the baserunners he lets on, you'd think Cabrera would be used to pitching from the stretch.

I can't express accurately just how happy I am that guy isn’t on the team anymore. I’d MUCH rather have Eaton than Cabrera.

Boy, I'm tired of the "thrower not a pitcher" cliche (nothing personal to you, panick, you're just reporting what you heard).

Bottom line is, he's not even a good thrower anymore. His fastball has lost some serious zip and his curveball doesn't break like it used to. Add in the fact that he has no command, and he's just a bad pitcher.

Rob Dibble on XM yesterday said that Cabrera was one of the bad contracts Jim Bowden signed, and that he didn't even have a 2008 scouting report on him when he did so. That's just amazing to me, if true.

    • 09 romorr: Would you do a Hall/Cowser trade for Brandon Woodruff?     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I might     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I’d want an extension window     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think the Orioles should be adding talent, but I think in FA right now     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think you don’t start cashing in everyone until you have MORE confirmation that you’re good
    • Tampa is a purely transactional team like the A’s.   The Orioles have more resources and can be a hybrid much like the Indians or Mariners.  They can lay out for one or two big free agent contracts and extend their own players.   They will begin being more transactional in 3-4 years when the first wave of players gets closer to free agency.
    • Are the O's willing to participate in the posting process?
    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
