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.
