He has a good assortment of pitches and coupled with his improving control, he is a guy I really like for the future. A lot of fantasy players still avoid COL pitchers like the plague, but with a low HR/9 and his gb tendencies, Ubaldo has skills that play well in that park. I've been waiting for a breakout for a few years, and perhaps he has finally started to turn a corner.


Sounds a lot like Carmona :-o , hopefully Ubaldo will continue to progress...

Whats FIP?


It's basically is an adjusted ERA calculation which attempts to find out what a pitcher's ERA would be solely based on elements within the pitcher's control...ie. defense is removed from the calculation.


what fezzik said ^

and some details...

hardballtimes.com wrote:FIP (Link)
Fielding Independent Pitching, a measure of all those things for which a pitcher is specifically responsible. The formula is (HR*13+(BB+HBP-IBB)*3-K*2)/IP, plus a league-specific factor (usually around 3.2) to round out the number to an equivalent ERA number. FIP helps you understand how well a pitcher pitched, regardless of how well his fielders fielded. FIP was invented by Tangotiger.


Wow thats confuzzling
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Ubaldo's stuff is as good as anyone.

Ubaldo with control = stud
Ubaldo without control = frustrating

everytime I throw him out for a spot start, he gets destroyed - plus my league counts K/BB so I'm rather cautious with pitchers like U

If you take away the games where Chris Davis hasn't had a HR, he's hit at least 1 HR every game!
