Ubaldo has given up 2 hits and 1 run in every inning so far. He's over 70 pitches through 3. Not what we wanted. But at least we are scoring some runs.

Are the rangers swinging at every pitch out there or is it Jimenez's pitch location?

Overthrowing. Can't spot the fastball consistently. Breaking stuff has tremendous late movement, but hitters don't have to swing at it because they're ahead in the count. Touched 97 a couple times last inning, so the velo's there.

He looks jittery. Fast tempo, a lot of movement in his mechanics. I don't know if that's how he usually works, but I think it's a little more over the top than usual.


Great stuff thanks for the 411

He hasnt made to may mistakes. Just hes behind almost every hitter, so they are waiting on his fastball and hitting it. His location when he does throw a strike has been pretty decent.

Yeah, that is still a nagging question I have. Big market teams go all-in for average guys at the deadline. A guy like Jimenez would normally have had 2 or 3 of the 'haves' on his trail- it would be reported for maybe a couple weeks even. But the way it played out, people acted as though he wasn't really available, until the trade happened.

Edit- was it all about the loss in velocity thing (that's been debunked tonite)?

There's been a lot of inconsistency with the command, but you can see the flashes of brilliance. Let's see him settle down for his regular turn in the order, at home, and see what they've got.

Ubaldo's definitely laboring, but the last thing we want is Herrmann or Durbin to take a shit on his efforts.

Hmmm very mixed feelings on Ubaldo's first appearance.

- Not throwing strikes
- Has no command
- But when hes getting hit they have been quality strikes.
- Not a good start at all. 5 IP, 4 runs and 7 hits. Ugh...

First start. Emotional roller coaster all week. Good lineup. Bad ballpark. No help from his catcher.

Can't evaluate much from tonight. All I know is he has nasty stuff and you see all the potential the Indians saw when trading for him.

Im thinking this was a tough spot for Ubaldo. Coming into this park, against this team for his first start, after all the BS and drama he went through his last two weeks in Colorado. Hopefully he settles down during his next start.....

Can't evaluate much from tonight. All I know is he has nasty stuff and you see all the potential the Indians saw when trading for him.



Bullshit, I've evaluated, and this is the worst trade in sports history. I'm goin gto burn down the Indians FO on Monday.

- Not throwing strikes
- Has no command

First start. Emotional roller coaster all week. Good lineup. Bad ballpark. No help from his catcher.

Bad luck there. Would've probably been caught by Kip.
