This time, Cabrera makes the right call

Orlando Cabrera was wrong, dead wrong. He's been playing major-league baseball for 10 years, and even the rawest rookies know you don't call the official scorer during a game and try to get an error call overturned. Apparently, Cabrera has a different view, so we'll disagree on that. But after the White Sox' impressive 5-1 win over upstart Tampa Bay Thursday night, Cabrera was dead right in his decision to meet with the media and do some needed damage control. You can read the full story in the Daily Herald, but to paraphrase, Cabrera said he's cool with Sox manager Ozzie Guillen and he respects his teammates. The 33-year-old shortstop had a talk with Jim Thome before the game, so he probably got some good advice from one of the best teammates any sport has ever produced. Cabrera said it's all about winning, and the White Sox have been all about that lately. He is still a free agent at the end of the season, and I still have serious doubts about the Sox' interest in bringing Cabrera back. But for now, and probably for the rest of the season, all is well with Cabrera.
