Fonzy Scheme: Selling High on Ubaldo?
Not me. That’s partially because I wasn’t able to get my hands on him in any of my leagues. However, if I was able to draft Jimenez, I would only consider trading him if someone offered up the farm. This kid is the real deal at just 26 years old and he enters his third full season hotter than an Icelandic volcano.
Quick and simple comparison:
2008- Started 34 Games, 198.2 IP, Finished 12-12, 172K, 103 BB, 3.99 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, .243 BAA
2009- Started 33 Games, 218.0 IP, Finished 15-12, 198K, 85 BB, 3.47 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, .229 BAA
2010- Started 3 Games, 21 IP, 3-0, 20K, 10 BB, 1.29 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, .203 BAA (Did I mention a No Hitter?)
You do the math. He’s made noticeable improvements in the most essential categories, all while at Coors. Not sure he will keep up this pace, but I’d be patient until someone makes me a deal I can’t refuse.
What are your thoughts?
