Wouldn't it be great if it really is this simple? If all it took to fix Daniel Cabrera was to improve his eyesight ala Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn? The Washington Post story on Cabrera's vision correction is here.

Insight on the backup catcher battle among other things over at Orioles.com. Says Perlozzo:

"If somebody is going to steal it away from Bako, he's going
to have to swing the bat and catch pretty well. Paul's been around a pretty long time. But we'll give them all a shot and see what they got."

Well, it won't take much to outhit Bako. Bako will still need to show diminished defensive skills (which he has) to open the door to House or Donachie.

Matos is going to the Pirates? Man that's a sad state of affairs for Pittsburgh.

Yeah, although I think they see him as a fourth outfielder/late game defensive substitute type guy. He can't hurt you too much in that role...
