It’s not like giving up a first rounder in the NFL, where, at the very least, the guy will start for you for a few years, and might even make some Pro Bowls. Totally different story in MLB.
Brittany Ghiroli joined Ed & Steve to talk about the Ubaldo Jimenez addition.
Ryan Webb joined The Scott Garceau Show to talk about spring training and the up coming season. Also touching on some of the recent moves the Orioles have made.
Prior to this, I thought the off-season was a disaster, an F. They needed to upgrade the rotation, get a DH, fill holes and hopefully upgrade LF and 2B, plus try top extend Davis and/or Wieters.
Buck Showalter joined Ed & Steve to talk about the signing of new starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez.
Jimenez is only 30, so he is in the prime of his career. He was one of the more sought-after free-agent starting pitchers on the market and Baltimore got him at a reasonable price.
Orioles agree with Ubaldo Jimenez; reports indicate that the deal is for four years and $50 million.
Orioles expect to sign right-hand pitcher for a surprisingly low price. Why would he come over for less than $2 M a year?
Billy Ripken joined the Scott Garceau Show last minuet to talk about Derek Jeter and his pending retirement.
We all know that the Orioles have been relatively quiet with the big moves since the 2013 season came to an end and that has not gone over well with fans and media alike.
In a world of fast growing profits, revenue streams from advanced media and local / regional TV network deals the Baltimore Orioles still remain in the middle to low end of MLB spending.
This is a big spring for Baltimore Orioles lefty Zach Britton. He is out of options and has to make a positive impression in Sarasota if he wants to remain a Bird.
