So Long Ubaldo...It's Been A Great Ride
Ubaldo Jimenez traded to the Cleveland Indians tonight for a bunch of prospects including two great pitching prospects which I might be happy about in time. But tonight I am sad because the best pitcher in Rockies history with a very team friendly contract for 4 more years is gone for a guarantee of nothing. I am not a prospector by any means, but most prospectors think it was a great deal for Colorado. Prospects fail every year and even if one of the two hit their ceiling (which is by no means a given), you might have another Ubaldo in three years. I am depressed, but at least he isn't a Yankee which is the only thing I am holding onto right now.
