The Orioles need to release Ubaldo before tomorrow's game. Enough is enough allready. His performance is absolutely embarrassing. Why do the Orioles put up with it?

Because they have so many options?

It is getting in the range of eatable.  Less than half of the 13 mill to go.  Red Sox eat nearly 50 mill and 19 mill against their competitive balance tax every year through 2019 with Panda release.  We might eat 5 mill with Ubaldo, but I doubt it.

They should release Miley and Tillman too, while they're at it.  Give Alec Asher, Jayson Aquino and Gabriel Ynoa their rotation spots. They can't do any worse, and in any case the team might as well see if any of them can improve by the end of the season and be a potential back-end option going forward.  

The season is lost; no point wasting any more playing time on expiring assets who aren't helping you win games now anyway. 

Oh, they should fire Roger McDowell too.

Ubaldo is getting his money from us regardless and kindly being shown the door at season's end.. might as well just release and bring up a kid.  Give em some experience in The Show.

I said this several weeks ago. Ubaldo is a drain on the team mentally. Release him and fire McDowell. Please!

Think of the money paying fans. Like me ! I'm a season ticket holder and I am beyond being fed up.

If changes don't happen soon the fans will stop showing up and ticket sales will slow to a halt.

27 runs in 3 games. Incredible !

I say keep him, regardless of his performance, and force him to throw 125 pitches every 5 days. Put him on the mound, and don't let him exit unless he gets drilled in the eye with a baseball. We need an innings eater and he should be able to go 4 innings every 5 days even if he gives up 12 runs. It's not like anyone else on our club or farm system could do any better.

In fact, I'm happy when the Orioles have non-competitive games where they lose 8-0, 10-0, or worse. That's good for making the case to the braindead, comatose leadership that it's time to blow up this team. Wins only give them pause and make them doubt and commit less to selling.

Ubaldo is actually helping the Orioles. Keep sending him out there.

He will be the only starter let go. Miley they will hope gets better and they can move him in August. Tilllman has done too much here.

The only caution is that developing pitchers should not be overmatched by the batters they face.  If a guy is working on a changeup, for example, he needs to learn how to sneak it by a so-so hitter first in the minors.  If he throws it in the bigs and every time it is a HR, he can not learn how to improve.
