Ubaldo's season is something that couldn't even be drawn up by the most insane sabermetrician.His BB/9 is an astounding 6.58, a full 2.5 BB/9 above his career average and almost double his 2011 number of 3.73. His BABip against is .268, which is unbelievably close to his .254 AVG against. Consider that for his career, Ubaldo's AVG against is .231 and BABip against is .285. His K% is 8.5% off his career of 21%. His 72.3% LOB% (left on base %) is almost right at his career average of 71.2%. His 5.81 FIP is a full two runs above his career and a full two runs above his 2011 FIP.His velo is down and he's thrown more curve balls this year than he did in the previous 5 seasons. Yet, he's thrown more first pitch strikes this season than he ever has (except 2006's small sample size of 2 games). His GB% is the lowest it has ever been.What we're seeing here, and this really isn't all that shocking, is a guy who has the chance to get progressively worse as the season goes on. Hard to believe he could get any worse, but the numbers definitely point to it. You would think that such drastic outliers to his career numbers would mean that he should get better and start to move closer to his mean, but that really doesn't look plausible.

The Indians may have blown their biggest trade chips.... but it looks like so did the Rockies. Both White/Pomeranz had questions about 3rd pitches when they were with the Indians, and it doesn't look like they've answered them. White/Pomeranz combined career numbers:110 innings in 22 starts: 73 earned runs, 174 baserunners, 83:50 K:BB ratio
