Id have zero tolerance for Ubaldo today.

Recommended Posts

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.

I sure hope he does well.

If Ubaldo does horribly and gets yanked early: what do you think Buck should do with him in the future? Leave him in the rotation, send him to the pen to work out his problems, or DFA him and perhaps another team can work out his problems?

I'd put him in the BP.

I agree with Roy's sentiments, but we do need to get some innings from our starters. I want 5 innings. Then take him out after the next batter he allows on with a bad pitch.

Easy to say, but suppose he walks the first three batter? You pull him then? How many innings do you think Worley can go 3? 4? Who comes after? No Bundy. No TJ. Gvens? Brach. They are on fumes. He has to go at least 4 IMO.

Unless we have a lead, I say let Ubaldo dig his own grave or make a statement. If we get up by a couple of runs in the 5th or 6th, I pull him at the earliest sign of unraveling. Otherwise, if we get behind early, he can take one for the team.

If you take Jiminez out in the first and then Worley gets destroyed then what do you do? You don't want to end up killing your entire bullpen over one game. If Jiminez pitches four terrible inning most likely it would be his last start. Long season. People get too hung up on one game.

3 batters in 2 runs 3 hits. Get rid of this guy. I don't care if you throw a single A guy in there (semi joking). I can't stomach this guy anymore.

When is enough, enough with this clown?

Get rid of him already

Can Roy pitch?

    • Isn't he the guy that has the record for most strikeouts without a walk? I think he's at 40 K's and 0 walks.
    • Whoa on this stat about Corbin Burnes.   
    • Interesting (to me anyway) on the Hey Bill section (which is public) of Bill James' website: Hey Bill, I always meant to ask you this question. If you were the general manager of a really bad team, say the 1962 Mets: how many years do you think it would take you to build a pennant contender? Thanks Asked by: manhattanhi Answered: 4/21/2021  I don't really have the skill set to be a General Manager, but I would say this:  that if it takes longer than 7 years then there is something missing in the process, and if you can do it in less than 4 years then you've had some very good luck as well as a good process.  
    • Ohtani also leads the American League in walks....   as a pitcher. 
    • I didn't want them to sign Franco either. (Though for $800k, it doesn't much matter who they chose to play 3B.) But that play was not at all his fault. He did exactly what he is trained to do in that situation. So if this thread is really about the bunt, it's not the place to thrash Franco.
    • Glad to hear Kjerstad has been medically cleared and is healthy enough to start working out with the team. Hopefully we see him at OPACY sometime in 2022 and full-time in 2023.   
    • The Orioles want exciting players, too -- so long as they're cheap and aren't among the Saviors of the Franchise being held back so that team control of them will fall within some imagined flood of talent that's on its way some day. If they can't have all those things, the Orioles will opt for cheap. I'll try to explain in a future post why I think the Orioles may be underestimating the damage they're doing to themselves, but here's the gist of it. By not trying, year after year, to put young, entertaining talent on the field, the Orioles are having their fan base, and attendance, eaten away. That's a manageable problem if you're operating in Houston or Chicago, or in a pre-Nats Baltimore with a stadium that itself is a fan attraction. In Baltimore, in 2017-22, the loss of fans is much more likely to have significant, long-lasting effects.
