DFA Ubaldo

Can't send him down. Not as big of a deal without Zach but he limits them down there. He was ok out of pen at times but he is also a guy up big in a blowout you cant. trust. 

Best thing may be a phantom DL move and then he goes on minor league assignment. 

I'm sure Buck has an intern drilling a pothole in the parking lot for Ubaldo to "accidentally" sprain his ankle right now. 

Ubaldo cannot be allowed to start another game if the O's have serious aspirations to play in the postseason.

Can someone explain why Ubaldo Jimenez is still starting for the Baltimore Orioles? Anyone? Bueller?

Because Buck is to loyal for his own and the teams good sometimes. he continues to send that guy out there expecting different results. Insanity.

Not just Wilson. The offense that just couldn't get it together. The whole f- - - ing team.  :down:

Exactly how many runs does an offense have to score to win in the major leagues? I mean come on, 6 flippin runs was enough to win that game. Especially knowing it was 5-0. We can't pitch, period and because of that we are not a serious contender, we are a pretender.

I guess I understand why he is still on the team, but I have no idea why he is not in the bullpen.

This is exactly how I feel.  I get why they are keeping him ($), but I cannot fathom as to why he is still in the rotation.

Ubaldo sucks. Ubaldo gets sent to the pen. Orioles need an emergency starter. Buck chooses Ubaldo. Ubaldo pitches well. Ubaldo is back in the rotation.

And round and round we go

You're not wrong.

Every single game is important.

You can lose the division by 1 single loss. You can miss the playoffs by 1 single loss. 

Ubaldo has 20 more starts scheduled.

I would love to give Asher a shot and move Ubaldo to the bullpen. Problem is, that would cost a shuttle spot, which in turn would prevent us from keeping Kim. Ubaldo would have to be DFA, but what happens if Asher fails and then Ubaldo is gone?

So much for Spring Training quotes.

 

"In the first couple of workdays, I could tell," Showalter said. "I was telling Roger, 'Have you done anything with him?' He said, 'no.' I'm hoping he found something last year and he's going to run with it this year."

 

“It has been,” manager Buck Showalter said before today’s game. “I actually think this is the best arm strength and consistent delivery he’s had since I’ve had him here, so I hope that bodes well. I’m happy with where he is. Talk to me after the game and we’ll see. The other team is going to tell me if that’s still doing well today.”

I don't know if DFA is the best answer, but I do know you can't keep trotting out a starter with a 7.17 ERA. Give a guy like Asher a try it can;t be any worse then the Ubaldo debacle.

It's the last year of the contract I really don't care what happens the O's could not be stupid enough to offer him another contract.

Hate to keep harping on the same point but the fact that Castro was sent down for Wilson BEFORE the game says it all. The Orioles are telling everyone including Ubaldo we don't trust you. 

If Asher fails they can always send him back to the pen. Have to try something and stop running someone out there that the team is afraid of. If they are fortunate enough to be in the race in late July perhaps DD can pull off a Joe Saunders type.

Well it's that or let him keep pitching in some form or another. I guess you could stick him in the pen and only use him in mop up scenarios, but if he's that bad, why not just let him go? He's going to get paid this year no matter what. It's his last year. End it.

At this point I'd trade him for a bag of broken bats and a pop up toaster... but I don't think we'd get that for him.  

It would be nice to trade him for something that had a repeatable motion.

 

Srsly though, I was hoping to log on this morning to find the issue has been resolved.
