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.

    • I just don’t get how we can send down our MVP, Valaika, and still expect to win games?!?!
    • No of course you don’t...but he believes himself to be.  It’s part of the whole thing you were talking about.
    • I actually found it quite entertaining. To each their own I guess.
    • It is widely expected that DJ Stewart will be activated for the Injured List today.  What does you bring and how can he help? He brings experience.  In DJ's pro career he has played  527 games in the outfield corners.   Ryan Mountcastle has played 55  games in the outfield in the minors and the majors.   DJ's  outfield experience has not always been perfect.  He is known for some spectacular misplays.   But he has average speed,  average range and an average left fielder's arm.   HIs overall outfield defensive game should be a improvement over Mountcastle and should move Ryan to DH more often than not if Brandon Hyde takes advantage for the assets he is given. Stewart offensive game is a low average with power and the ability to work a walk that has netted him a 224/334/433/768 split in 301 major league plate appearances.   His left-handed bat should be additive to the O's lineup.    How long will you stay may depend on how he does and whether Austin Hays hamstring heals fast or lingers.   If Stewart does well he will give the Hyde a reason to go from 14 pitchers to 13 when Hays returns.    Injuries have been a problem for Stewart but over the last 3 years he has played in 77% of his teams game.  That is about the same as Santander. Much better than Hays 59% or Diaz 64% but not close to Mullins 93%. Good Luck DJ.  I hope you are at the top of your game because the O's could use that player.    
    • Personally I find it more constructive and rewarding to riff on the idea of a developmental system and service time manipulation for announcers than I do wildly speculating about what the guy who says names out loud could have possibly done to get himself escorted out of the gates.
    • My supposition is he did something the team found unacceptable very recently.   I’m sure they didn’t like the timing at all.  
    • Let’s look at the six main culprits so far: 1.   Ryan Mountcastle, 11 K’s in 30 PA (36.7%).  21.4% last year. 2.  Trey Mancini, 11 K’s in 31 PA (35.5%).  21.1% in 2019. 3.   Rio Ruiz, 10 K’s in 25 PA (40%). 22.5% last year. 4.  Freddy Galvis, 10 K’s in 29 PA (34.5%).   18.9% last year,. 5.  Pedro Severino, 9 K’s in 23 PA (39.1%).    22.5% last year. 6.  Anthony Santander, 9 K’s in 27 PA (33.3%).   15.2% last year. I’m fairly sure all those are coming down substantially.   The one that worries me most is Mancini, for obvious reasons.
