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.

    • Worst of all, I often have an allergic reaction to many hoppy / dry beers (and also dry wines). I don’t know what causes it, as I haven’t been willing to spend thousands to find out exactly why, but lagers are safe so I stick with those. I was so excited for the beer revolution in the US that really kicked in about 20 years ago, but am constantly amazed how you can walk into a bar with 30 microbrews on draft and there will be only one or two that aren’t IPAs. 
    • Both Holt and Akin where very interesting.   Good one to listen to.
    • Orioles Manager Brandon Hyde has tabbed journeyman Thomas Eshelman to take the bump in Sunday afternoon's Spring Opener at Ed Smith Stadium.  https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/02/orioles-notes-and-quotes-from-todays-workout.html
    • Holt and Akin were tonight's guests. Roch before the interview segments on crowded OF I did notice the tone of certainty in his banter about Santander going at trade deadline. Holt describing Valdez said it is as simple as he "does what he's good at a bunch", which reminded me of Earl's book and his observation almost nobody is good at everything.   I think I heard him ruling out 6-man rotation when he got that question, saying the extra rest too disruptive to pitcher's rhythms.  I am guessing we will more skip starts, or shorten seasons to manage that. Akin gave a "trust the process" quote about marching orders from Holt at AAA to use sliders and change-ups when normally he wouldn't, even if walks ensued.   He said he and DL Hall talk all the time.   Asked about the 60 to 162 part of this year's challenge, he shared a bit from a conversation with Kremer, where Kremer said he simulated 50-60 innings between Spring Training 1 and Spring Training 2, and that he also was generally working like that last April/May/June too.
    • You left out Sceroler and Wells. And Mattson too for that matter.
    • I don't know Frobby.  I am guessing the performance of the NRIs is irrelevant.   I think they have a plan for Lowther, Wells, and Baumann.  I dont know exacrly what it is, and wouldn't be surprised if it was more conservative than a lot of us want. But I don't think it will be changed by what the NRIs do in the spring.  If The Plan is for any of the 3 guys to be here at the start or early in the season, they will be here.  If, more likely, The Plan is to slow play them, then I think they will be slow played.  And if all the MRI possibilities look awful, we'll either pick up someone on waivers or just go with the slightly less awful of the NRIs and suffer.  I don't think the development of Zac Lowther will be affected in any way by whether Felix Hernandez has totally lost it or if he still has something left
