    No Ubaldo = No world Series

    If theo does not land ubaldo jimenez then the sox can kiss their world series hopes good bye. Guys like bedard, kuroda, guthrie etc with not make enough of an impact. The only guy worth trading for is ubaldo jimenez. The rockies want middlebrooks and ranaudo as the two main guys for him. If I am theo i would give them those guys in a hearbeat. Ranuado is like 22 years old and is in high A and whiel middlebrooks is good we have other 3B prospect in checcini, boegarts etc. For once i would like to theo get a deal done and not worry so much about the damn prospects. He needs to be more like ruben amaro jr who is the phillies gm. The guy identifies a guy he wants that will fill a need and he gets a deal done. Look at how many big trades he has pulled off hallday, lee, oswalt, and now pence. He gave up some high ranked prospects for pence but so what. He got his guy. Who knows if those prospects will ever pan out. We need a number 3 starter. Buchholz will be out for potentially the whole season. The rest of the rotation outside of beckett and lester is a joke. Something people need to keep in mind is that buchholz was not the original number 3 starter and was originally the number four guy after the sox got lackey. The only reason he became the number 3 starter is because lackey sucked so they decided to drop him in the rotation. Ubaldo Jimenez would give us a 1-3 punch that could go toe to toe with the phillies in the playoffs. Just once i would like to see theo give the other team what they want and get a deal done. If they want ranaudo and middlebrooks then fine. Ranaudo would be blocked in the rotation anyways if we jimenez and middlebrooks is blocked at 3B. These guys are expendable. New prospect come in every year. Opportunities to acquire an ace pitcher who is only 27 years old and in his prime with a dirt cheap contract does not.

    no if they traded ranuado in a deal for jimenez, they would be set with beckett, lester, jimenez, buchholz, lackey.

    Re: No Ubaldo = No world Series

    I'm glancing at Jimenez' stats and I am seeing a guy who is having a bit of an off year.

    ERA is higher than it has been in 4 years.

    W-L is not healthy either.

    The walk to strikeout ratio , however, is good.

    Is this guy really a season-make or breaker? I just don't see that.

    Ubaldo Jimenez has a higher WHIP than Tim Wakefield.

    The thread title is a tremendous overstatement.

    While he might help, I'm very leary about him. He's like 12-15 with a 4.31 (something like that) ERA over his last 30 to 35 starts in the N.L.

    I'm not seeing it. Too many people are hung up on his great start last year. He's been mediocre at best since then.

    all true zill

    but his last 2 months show considerable  improvement

    and his home vs away whip is interesting IMO



    home 1.67  away .99 whip

    I'd be all in for him too. A great arm, low-impact motion, throws FB with excellent movement. MPH velocity down a bit this year due to off-season workout program, or lack thereof. Still great hits/innings and k/bb rates.
    E.R.A., W-L record & W.H.I.P. numbers reflect a hard-luck pitcher working at Coors Field 50  % of time.

    But check out seasonal AND career numbers on road !( 2011= 2.83 era, 0.994 whip). And in 2007 he looked okay at Fenway in WS game.

    But I thought it was Weiland & Middlebrooks ?
    For three years at relatively low cost I'd give them all 3.

    Oh almost forgot. Rarely allows home runs, anywhere, but especially away from Coors Canaveral, as the locals here in Colorado term it.

    Healthier than Harden or Bedard, younger than Kuroda, cheaper than W. Rodriguez.

    Sorry saw the title of the post and laughed a bit. Ubaldo Jimenez had one great season last year and struggled to put it together this year. And to bring forth such an ultimatum is pure folly. I've always detested these freak-out posts, sure lets break the bank on Jimenez and take a huge chance he'd be good. I believe Guthrie and Shields are also available, both excellent and both cheaper, probably better bets considering they've had extensive experience in the AL east, one of the best hitting divisions in all of baseball.

    Also, please give theo credit, the guy broke the bank to get Gonzo and Crawford, it's not like he is as tight fisted as he is made out to be.
