Id have zero tolerance for Ubaldo today.

Recommended Posts

This is the end of Ubaldo as a starter era. And he may be released outright.
Yep just release him. Don't even want to see him in bullpen. This sh?t getting old.

Ubaldo's nickname henceforth should be: The Crippler. Ubaldo "the crippler" Jimenez. Cripples us 6/7 times he hits the mound.

Dump the dude, already. Jim Palmer will be happy. Give a kid on the farm a chance. Pick one out of a hat. They would have a

hard time doing worse than "the crippler.":wedge:

Jiminez on his outing: I only had one bad inning and I didn't walk anyone so that is a positive.
He had one third of an inning.

Ubaldo has to go to the bullpen. Give him a chance to get sorted out without killing the team. Go back to 8-man bullpen. It's not like Janish is mashing LHPs and that is his only role.
Absolutely agree. If the team releases him, then they eat up two years of a huge salary. The team needs some of that money to sign Trumbo, Wieters, maybe Alvarez, plus a decent starting pitcher. Plus Manny. Let Ramon work with him in the BP for the rest of the year.

He was mostly in the stretch position.

The stretch position modified by the quick turn of the head to watch balls rocketing around the park.

I'm hoping DD has a plan to get out of this. I just read that the CHC are looking for more pitching and this is a year that the Orioles have a shot at the WS only IF we can get a stable, legitimate starting rotation.

Now is the time to fix it. I don't know why we weren't in on James Shields. I don't know if DD is looking around at bottom-ranked teams that might have a decent TOR guy ready to get out of there. This cannot continue.

I am willing to take a bottom of the rotation starter instead of the NBBIR guys we have now. (No Business Being In Rotation). Lol.

If he starts walking people and putting people on all over the place, Id yank him early and go right to Worley.

I dont think Buck should have anything but a short hook for him.

Im sick to death of our pitchers giving us no chance to win a ball game.He needs to know hes expected to get outs early and not walk a ton of people early. If he cant get through an inning , he needs to sit and someone else needs to get a chance.

I have very little optimism that he will pitch well today.Not with this Blue Jays team crushing the ball.

ZERO TOLERANCE SUNDAY.

Rather prophetic I would say! Nice going Roy!

He needs to DFA on Monday. Enough.

Nah, if they wait until Tuesday, I'm ok with it.

    • This is where we will track significant activity throughout spring training. This will be updated with cuts and additional players acquired throughout the spring. Starters John Means  (3/1) Will make his spring debut tomorrow against the Yankees and lines up for the Opening Day start on April 1st Keegan Akin (3/1) Healthy and will need to pitch himself off this team Dean Kremer (3/1) Healthy will need to pitch himself off this team Jorge López (3/1) Allowed two runs in two innings of work on five hits and walk. needed 47 pitches to get through two innings. For some reason though the Orioles are giving him every opportunity to win a spot in the rotation.  Felix Hernandez (NRI) (3/1) Reportedly looks a little heavy but is healthy and will be given every opportunity to win a spot in the rotation. Matt Harvey (NRI) (3/1) Hasn't pitched well in the majors since 2018 and was hammered last year in Kansas City. His lost spin on his stuff but will be given an opportunity to win a spot in the rotation or possibly in the pen. Wade LeBlanc (NRI) (3/1) Brought back despite tossing just one good start last year. Changeup pitcher who can provide some depth in the bullpen or as a swingman if needed. Bruce Zimmermann (3/1) If he pitches well he could be in the rotation. Ashton Goudeau (3/1) Reportedly has looked pretty good in camp so far but hasn't had any success over AAA. Thomas Eshelman (NRI) (2/28) Lunch bucket guy got the spring opener but allowed two runs, one earned on a hit and two walks.  Michael Baumann (3/1) Heading for AAA Zac Lowther (3/1) Heading for AAA, but pitched out of some trouble in spring debut allowing two base runners but no runs. Fastball sat 88-91 and his threw five changeups out of his 14 pitches. Alexander Wells (2/28) Reportedly has an oblique injury for the second straight spring and will be held back (3/1) Heading for AAA Josh Rogers (NRI) Mickey Jannis (NRI) Konner Wade (NRI) Spenser Watkins (NRI) (2/28) Tossed a scoreless 9th against minor leaguers. Relievers Hunter Harvey Tanner Scott Cesar Valdez Dillon Tate Paul Fry Shawn Armstrong (3/1) Down 1.3 MPH off his 2020 velocity, Armstrong allowed a two-run homer in his one inning of work.  Travis Lakins Sr. Cole Sulser Isaac Mattson (2/28) Allowed a home run and walked two in his Orioles spring debut. Mac Sceroler (3/1) Rule 5 pick made his spring debut and worked his way out of bases loaded jam. Walked two and allowed a single, needing 28 pitches to get through his frame against mostly minor leaguers. He sat 92-94 mph with fastball and showed a hard curve that he varied from 78-84 MPH but it didn't have a ton of break. Just one outing, but nothing stood out stuff wise as a guy you have to keep. Tyler Wells (3/1) Rule 5 pick made his debut as well tossing one scoreless innings allowing a walk. His fastball sat 93.7  to  95.4 MPH but didn't show a ton of life. He did get one swing and miss on his fastball up in the zone and recorded a strikeout on a curveball looking against a minor leaguer. With his size and fastball curveball combination he could be interesting in relief. Conner Greene (NRI) 2/28 - Struck out two of the three batters he faced and reportedly hit 97 MPH. That will open some eyes. Marcos Diplán (NRI)  2/28 - Tossed a scoreless innings of relief. Fernando Abad (NRI) (2/28) Brought in the game in the 2nd inning to face major leaguers, pitched his way out of a jam allowing two hits and walk but not a run. Cody Carroll (NRI) Evan Phillips (NRI) Eric Hanhold (NRI)  (2/28) Pitched the 3rd inning against major leaguers and allowed two runs, one earned on two hits including a home run in his innings of work. Jay Flaa (NRI) Zach Muckenhirn (NRI) Dusten Knight (NRI)   Catchers Pedro Severino (3/1) Odds on favorite to start most of the games at catcher this year. Chance Sisco (3/1) Typically a spring training phenom, he's looking to get more opportunities this season. Austin Wynns (NRI) (2/28) Needs an injury to make the team but is probably first up behind the dish. Taylor Davis (NRI) (3/1) Lunch bucket guy who can catch and play some first base Heading to AAA. Nick Ciuffo (NRI) (3/1) Former top prospect trying to refind it with the Orioles. Good defensive catcher who has never hit. Adley Rutschman (NRI) 3/1 Here to catch pitchers and soak in the majors until he's reassigned. Most likely will start in Aberdeen or Bowie. 1st Base Trey Mancini (2/28) Got a standing ovation before his first at bat and then singled sharply. Chris Davis (2/28) Got the start at DH, struck out in one his ABs and went 0-for-2. Tyler Nevin  (3/1) Got the start at 1B and went 0-for-2. Ryan Ripken (NRI)  (2/28) Lost his grandmother Vi. RIP to the Matriarch of the Ripken family. 2nd Base Yolmer Sanchez (2/28) Got the start at 2B and went 0-for1 with a walk. Should get the bulk of playing time at 2B this year. Jamai Jones (2/28) Came in for Sanchez and went 0-for-2. Probably heading to AAA to play everyday. Ramón Urías (3/1) Got start at 2B, Went 0-for-3 but did hit the ball hard one time. Terrin Vavra (NRI) (3/1) May get a look in the outfield as well as 2B and SS. Heading to Bowie to start 2021. Adam Hall (NRI) (2/28) Will be heading to Aberdeen to start the year most likely though he cold get pushed to AA if he gets off to good start.   Shortstop Freddie Galvis (2/28) Went 0-for-1 with a walk, K, and made a fielding error. Pat Valaika (3/1) Started at SS and went 1-for-2 with a walk. Will most likely be the team's utility player filling in all over the infield. Richie Martin (2/28) Will get late start do to having surgery on a broken hamate bone in his left hand. Was heading to AAA anyways. Mason McCoy (NRI) (2/28) Heading to AAA most likely but will be added infield depth this spring.

    • Just wanted to bump this if anyone is interested. 
    • He'll still catch his share of games.
    • Is the book closed on him being a C?
    • Good thing they don’t play basketball.
