MLB Game Picks - Monday: April 27, 2015

Confound it all! It took me two weeks to dig out of my early month hole and I finally did it and now I'm slipping right back down that slope! The extra-inning game thing is starting to really make me see red. I am now 0-8 in the last eight games that have gone into extra frames. How is that right? The Royals have gone flat. I'm a mess. Monday's picks: The Indians over the Royals...

White Sox-Orioles Preview

The Baltimore Orioles are yet to win a game in which they've scored fewer than four runs, and while their concerns on the mound can't be ignored, there's another reason they haven't yet won a pitchers' duel. Over the last nine games, they're batting .310 and averaging 6.11 runs. They'll try to carry that offense into a three-game home series with the White Sox beginning Monday night...

Baltimore Orioles: Starting Rotation Needs to Step up for Birds

Eighteen games into the 2015 season, Baltimore Orioles’ starting pitchers have registered four, count ’em, four quality starts. While there is some debate to the merit of the quality start statistic (to me, it is right up there with the hold in terms of useless baseball stats only used to give agents something to do when trying to pump up a player’s value), there is no denying...

Can Ubaldo Jimenez Stabilize the Orioles?

The Baltimore Orioles have had a rough couple of days. The team’s normally stellar defense has failed them this week and led to unearned runs, embarrassment, and some hurt feelings. After a sloppy display in Monday’s series finale loss to the Red Sox, the Orioles looked to rebound on Tuesday in Toronto against the Blue Jays. O’s starter Bud Norris failed to get past the third...

Umpire Jordan Baker Steals Show as Orioles Fall to Red Sox

Home plate umpire Jordan Baker has given baseball its first “Ump Show” of the year. An “Ump Show” is loosely defined as a moment when an umpire allows himself to exert too much control of the game with heavy-handed decisions. An umpire should never ultimately decide the outcome of the game, but that is exactly what happened at Fenway Park last night when Jordan Baker took...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 17

With the MLB week now over half done, our attention (in H2H leagues) turns to those last-minute pitcher adds to seal up the counting stats or preserve the ratios. Remember, if you’re in a league where you have spare weekly transactions or no transaction limit at all, you can make defensive adds by claiming the day’s best starters even if you have no intention of using them.

Ubaldo Jimenez Rounding Into Form; Spot in Orioles’ Rotation Assured?

The first three starts of Ubaldo Jimenez‘s 2015 Spring Training were far from pretty, and had many Orioles fans, including me, openly questioning his place with the Orioles. After three starts, the right-hander’s ERA sat at 11.05, and he had walked five batters and hit two more in only 7.1 innings. Now, three starts later, Jimenez has lowered his ERA this spring to 4.84. More...

As a general rule of thumb, I tend to question the sanity of those who espouse conspiracy theories, hunt for Bigfoot, or put too much stock in Spring Training statistics.  However, there is no getting around the fact that Ubaldo Jimenez is having a putrid spring for the Baltimore Orioles.  The line so far this spring for the pitcher who signed a $50 million contract with the Orioles...
