Jimenez getting booed on Sunday.

I was there. 12 rows behind the Orioles dugout. I HATE it when we boo our own. I don't care how much money he's making. We want him to succeed. Just like I hated when Jim Johnson got booed, and Kevin Gregg. I just can't understand why we would do that. Do we think that rattling our already rattled pitcher will make him better? He would not have been booed in Memorial Stadium.

I can honestly say that I was the only person standing and clapping for him on his way back to the dugout. Yes, I want a cookie.

"We're all behind him. There's not one guy here who doesn't understand what he's going through. Everybody at some point has kind of been going through what he's going through, so we're 100 percent behind him. We want him to succeed just as much as he does. It's just kind of a rough patch right now and hopefully we can give him some more opportunities to get out there and get the ball rolling."

Jimenez heard the booing as he walked off the mound in the ninth inning, four of the five Twins reaching base against him. Joseph hurt for him.

"Sure, of course," Joseph said. "We're like a family in here and you don't want anybody to ever struggle on your team. You want to try to do whatever you can to support and help through the struggles.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I still believe in Ubaldo. I don't think lack of effort is an issue so I wouldn't personally boo.

Still think he has some good times ahead with the O's. If not this year than in the future.

By all accounts he works hard, is a team player, and has a positive attitude. Basically I do not get the sense that he is thieving his salary. Maybe this isn't the year it clicks for him, but maybe next year he comes in as the nominal #4 or 5 and pitches like the 1 or 2. Hard to tell with him

Anything is possible.

but I still believe in Ubaldo.

So do I.

I don't think lack of effort is an issue,

Neither do I.

so I wouldn't personally boo.

Neither would I.

So do I.

If not this year, than in the future.

He still has 3 years and $36 Million left on his contract after the conclusion of this season, so I sure hope so.

I wish I had known you were there. We did not boo him either.

I never liked for a home team player being booed.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
