Curb Alert! The Orioles are shopping Ubaldo Jimenez

18 Comments

Signing Ubaldo Jimenez to a $50 million deal last winter did not impede the Orioles march to the AL East title. But it wasn’t a good move either, and now the O’s are trying to do some damage control:

It’s hard to imagine someone actually wanting Jimenez in and of himself. Rather, it’d probably be a good “bad contract for bad contract” sort of deal, preferably from a team that has a bum bat in a pitchers park that would do well to move to Camden Yards while providing Jimenez with a more Jimenez-friendly situation.

Like, I dunno, a park that is 500 feet below sea level with 500 foot power alleys and a marine layer that rolls in at about noon each day.
