Ubaldo time tonight; chat time tomorrow
After last night’s loss to the Giants, the Rockies turn to right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. This time last year, it was almost a sure thing. Jimenez was baseball’s hottest pitcher, and the Rockies always seemed to be turning to him after a loss.
This time, though, is different. Jimenez is coming off a thumb injury that has kept him off the mound since Opening Day. And, yes, the Rockies fell to the Giants, 8-1, last night, but losses — even without Jimenez — have been few and far between.
We’ll see what happens, then we can talk about it.
Tomorrow at 10 a.m. MT, please feel free to join me for a chat on MLB.com. I’ll be there answering questions and talking baseball for about a half-hour. Please register here:
