    Indians get Jimenez

    From MLBTraderumors.com:

    The organization that traded C.C. Sabathia and Cliff Lee away in high-profile summer trades is about to acquire an ace of its own. The Indians and Rockies have agreed on a deal that will send Ubaldo Jimenez to Cleveland, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (on Twitter).

    Jimenez, 27, has a 4.20 ERA with 8.6 K/9, 3.5 BB/9 and a 46.8% ground ball rate midway through an up and down season that has included flashes of brilliance, stretches of poor performance and a stint on the disabled list with a cuticle cut on the right-hander’s thumb. The third place finisher in last year's Cy Young voting, Jimenez broke out in 2010, posting a 2.88 ERA with 8.7 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 in 221 2/3 innings.

    Some of Jimenez's value comes from a contract that now seems team-friendly. Jimenez earns $2.8MM this year and $4.2MM in 2012. His contract includes a $5.75MM club option ($1MM buyout) for 2013 and an $8MM club option for 2014 ($1MM buyout).

    You know what, good for them and good for their fans.  Out of all the deadline "sellers" over the past 3 seasons, the Indians have dismantled their team more than anyone else.  Sabathia, Lee, V-Mart... and then guys like Peralta, Blake and Wood to a lesser extent.  It's good to see them on the other side for a change.

    Gordon Edes is saying the Red Sox are still holding out hope of getting Ubaldo...strange turn of events that he is now pitching.

    What did the Indians give up for him, if that deal is in place?

    Lars Anderson just pulled from his game, but it could be strategic. Who knows.

    Ubaldo gives indications to me of being hurt. He would be a tremendous pick up if he is healthy. Still a cheap contract. Why would the Rockies want to move him so badly unless they thought he was hurt?

    I'm guessing it's strategic.  He really doesn't have much value left at this point.  But who knows, maybe he's part of something brewing.

    MLB Trade Rumors also said that the Yankees wanted to do a physical on Jimenez before a deal, but the Rox said no, so the Yanks moved on.  I wonder how often this happens.

    That's the big question!

     I bet another team came in late and the rockies are trying to decide where to send him.  I bet the Red Sox are still in this !

    Thrown 28 pitches in the first, gotten one out and allowed 2 runs so far. Doesn't sound to me the deal with Cleveland has been completed yet.
    Unless Billyboy/ softlaw/yazzer is new Indians G.M., and lets his new acquisitions finish scheduled starts with old team ?

    Seriously, forget about this start ... he is worried about where he is going.

    Cleveland gives up their top righty Alex White, top lefty Drew Pomeranz, who is considered a power pitcher, 26 yr old Matt McBride 1B/OF, and P Joe Gardner who has struggled in AA...

    That is his contract? ! ? Wow, seems a no-brainer for any team. I hope he does well for the Indians, I sincerely do. 

    note: I hope he wins 20 games next season and his only losses are versus the Red Sox.
