Ubaldo is a nice guy......but we need to get him out of here. As much as I love him as a person.....I think it's time 

You do realize Ubaldo and Gausman are equally bad this year.

Edwin Jackson is coming up......hold my beer boys; our nightmare may finally be over 

Edwin Jackson is gonna be a bigger nightmare. Count on it. He got rocked last year, he's gonna get rocked at Camden and AL East stadiums.

Jackson is actually one of the few pitchers who's been even worse than Ubaldo over the last three years. His numbers are worse across the board.

Last three years (2014-Present)

Jackson- 5.55 ERA, 4.60 FIP, 4.52 xFIP, 4.54 SIERA, 1.53 WHIP, 70 ERA+

Ubaldo- 4.94 ERA, 4.49 FIP, 4.33 xFIP, 4.45 SIERA, 1.48 WHIP, 84 ERA+

The only argument for having Jackson over Ubaldo on the roster is that Jackson's numbers were pretty effective when he was used exclusively in relief a couple years ago. But then again, he put up terrible numbers out of the bullpen last year with the Marlins.

This strikes me as a tad misleading, although I'm sure these overall numbers are correct.   I would phrase it this way:

 

Jackson pitched extremely poorly in 2014 (as a starter), and then poorly again in 2016 in both pitching roles.  He had a strong 2015 campaign as a reliever.  His time with the Marlins last year was a relatively small sample size, although yes, his results were very poor.

Ubaldo has pitched various degrees of poorly every year since he's been here.

I think people are probably a little too optimistic about what Jackson can do for us............but I think it's definitely reasonable to give him a shot over Ubaldo.  Jackson has shown he can get outs at AAA at least, although his walk rate (10 in 20 IP) is pretty scary. 

So no, I don't think Jackson is here to save us, but I think he might be a slight upgrade over a guy who has struggled with us for 3.5 years, has no defined role of value, and also is already walking over 1 batter per 2 innings.

I see Ubaldo being traded before the draft.  The comp pick (2nd round) plus Ubldo gets rid of some or all the salary.  This gives the pen more flexibility and DD salary relief for trades in July.  DD loves both of those things.

As I stated in Jimenez' annual thread, he has pitched considerably better when he has had 5 or more days' rest for the last one-and-a-half seasons (2016-2017) than he has when he was on 4 days' rest.

That would appear to be a relatively large enough sample size to presume that that might not be a coincidence.

Problem with a six man rotation is that we can't even form a five man one. Gotta get creative. Call up Scott and Long every 10 days and have them go a combined 6.

I get where you're coming from, but I'd rather muddle through some weird six man with Ubaldo than normal Ubaldo.. if the stats pan out that way.

    • Is that true? I remember that being part of the negotiations but I dont think it ended up being part of the deal since MLB unilaterally set the number of games. MLBTR seems to think there are still qualifying offers and so does Twitter, based on my searching.
    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
