Ubaldo is the O's #2 starter. Live with it

Isn't he #3, behind Miley? (Not that that improves the outlook much.)

Miley's been awful lately.   Bottom line, we have Bundy and four guys who can't be trusted from one outing to the next.

I don't know about you all, but I will enjoy this win right now. I don't know how Ubaldo will do next start but I read and heard how he had been working with Ramon Martinez during his time in the pen. Ubaldo left the game to a standing ovation. 

The Grand Poo bah of the Ubaldo Jimenez Fan Club :clap::D

Now that was a good pitched game. 7 innings, 4 hits and 2 runs? I'll take that every time. IMO, a good starter gets into the 7th. I'm not a huge fan of these 6 inning quality starts.

In 2017, if you're consistently getting into the 7th, you're a GREAT starter.

Ubaldo was Good Ubaldo yesterday. He does this, from time to time. Like his brilliant start against Cincy back in April. But it's not his norm, nor will it ever be.

Then you aren't seeing what's being paid to pitchers. Arrieta is getting $15m. Ubaldo getting $13m a year at his age is actually pretty cheap.

Did you really just try to compare the Cy Young winner 2 years ago to Ubaldo Jimenez who has a 6.25 ERA this season

You're right that it's not a very apt comparison, though Arrieta (4.64 ERA) certainly isn't pitching like a $15 mm pitcher right now.     It will be interesting, if the rest of his season goes approximately like this, to see what kind of contract he commands in free agency this winter.    He may turn out to be a guy who had a relatively brief period of excellence but flamed out in his early 30's.     But I'm pretty sure his next contract will exceed Ubaldo's.

Ubaldo was coming off a very good season when he got paid, though if I recall correctly, most people agreed that his last season with Cleveland was a fluke.

He didn't get paid as if anyone was expecting four seasons like 2013.     His contract reflected his inconsistency.     That said, he's been considerably worse than his contract.

If you're going to blame anyone  blame Duquette.  He is the one who did this signing. 

Don't worry. The folks around here already blame him for everything short of the weather.

Ubaldo will always mix these good outings in.  But overall, there is always more bad than good. 

Best case scenario is that he goes on a nice little run here and we are able to flip him at the deadline. 

And the same for Tillman.

In 2013 he started off badly after two bad years before that. His ERA at the end of May was 5.57. End of June was 4.63. He had a great end of the year. The usual with Ubaldo even in that year was either good Ubaldo or bad Ubaldo. He has not put together a consistent season since 2010.

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
