We may not have gotten an ace out of the Ubaldo Trade, but it sure looks like we might have gotten a hot-head bent on eternal revenge.

In today’s Spring Training game between the Rockies and Indians, Ubaldo Jimenez drilled his former teammate Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning on the first pitch to the Colorado SS. No big deal, right?

Except that last week Tulowitzki made some unflattering comments to the local press concerning Ubaldo’s departure from the Rockies last season. And that was after Ubaldo totally told a Colorado reporter how playing for the Indians was like “heaven” compared to the Rockies clubhouse. Evidently this animosity goes back some time, at least since Tulowitzki received his massive contract extension (and Ubaldo did not) and perhaps all the way back to that one time when Troy stole Ubie’s favorite crayon during art class and then totally lied about it at lunch later that day.

Evidently the Bald One took notice.

Tulowitzki was removed from the game and taken to the clubhouse for X-rays. Jimenez stayed in the game and let up 6 ERs, 5 BBs, 4 hits and 2 HRs over 4.1 innings pitched.
