Winning.

The Los Angeles Angels' Orlando Cabrera points to dugout after his team beat the New York Yankees 5-3 in Game 2 of the American League Division Series in Anaheim, California  October 5, 2005. Cabrera's two-run single broke the game open for the Angels' 5-3 victory and the teams are tied at one game apiece in the five game series.

"Had the Sox retained Orlando Cabrera (who's hitting .257 to Renteria's .276 but fielding far better for the Angels) for less money and given Martinez the balance, they would have won the AL East by a wide margin and a far more imposing pitching staff to throw at the White Sox and then, very likely, the hated Yankees in the AL Championship series." -- 10.6, Ron Borges, NBCSports.com
