I had no idea that Ubaldo Jimenez had been this good… Since the All-Star break #Indians SP Ubaldo Jimenez has the 2nd lowest ERA in the American League at 1.94 in 55.2 Innings pitched. Ubaldo Jimenez has a 1.94 ERA and .220 opponents’ batting average over past 9 starts: 55.2 IP, 63 K, 45 H, 22 BB.Jimenez has been one of the best pitchers this year and yet he’s only owned in 34 percent of Yahoo! leagues. Jimenez got off to bad start and allowing 19 runs over his first four games, but it took him nine starts after that to allow 19 runs. In fact, Jimenez hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs since May 22nd (22 starts) which came against the Detroit Tigers. Ubaldo Jimenez since April 29: 11-7, 2.82 ERA, 142 SOs in 137.1 IP. Ace numbers. Indians easily won that trade.

An article by Seth Pae, a hopelessly optimistic die hard Cleveland sports fan Six months ago when the season started, many "experts " predicted that the Cleveland Indians would finish no higher than third place in the division if they were lucky.
