DFA Ubaldo

Recommended Posts

I've never seen a worse pitcher spend four years on the Orioles. He's unwatchable.  He's horrible. He's a nice guy, let him finish his career in Norfolk.  God knows no-one else will pick him up. Enough is enough. I'm officially done and if he isn't gone tomorrow, there is a major problem with this organization.

Agree.  Better options in the minors that likely could have kept this a 2-1 game for the last two innings giving the team a chance.

Buck should pitch him in every game until he's DFA-ed.

God bless Angelos. Won't sign ace pitchers. Won't eat contracts. Won't spend internationally.

Yes. It's time. The window on this "run" is closing rapidly, we can't afford to be wasting games just to justify one of the worst contracts in Orioles history.

At this point there's no other course of action. It's become apparent that the O's need every bullpen spot they've got in order to get by. There's no room for a true mop up guy, and that's the only role Ubaldo could ever hope to fill. Ever having to use him in a high-leverage situation is an abysmal failure. He should be gone ASAP.

I agree 1000% perhaps this is why they coaxed Edwin Jackson into staying at Norfolk a little longer??  I think he would most certainly be an upgrade over Baldy!

What does it mean that you're "officially" done? What makes it official?

There must be a notary public involved, somehow.

He stinks. Very debatable if he is an upgrade over Ubaldo.

It's like those toothpick things you get in your steak at Sizzler. There is possibly done, done, and officially done.

Uhm, he ate Bud Norris's contract.

Ubaldo is the guy that never goes away.  I feel like were watching the same thing over and over again. Starter, bullpen, mop up duty, starter, bullpen, mop up duty.

Btw, why the hell was he in a 1 run game Buck, sigh.

Pretty much what Buck said in his postgame presser.

On why he used Jiménez: “As opposed to who? That’s it. We’re not going to use Mike Wright, he had two days in a row. Darren and Brachy (Brad Brach) aren’t going to pitch unless we’re ahead. We’re trying to stay away from them. (Mychal) Givens was a no-go tonight. So we had Bleier and them and that’s where we were.
