Examining the Orioles options for Ubaldo Jimenez

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...

Orioles' Jimenez vows to rebound after disappointing year

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) Ubaldo Jimenez is hoping that 2015 is a complete turnaround from 2014.
