    And doing it with while pitching in a notoriously friendly hitters ballpark in Coors Field. Amazing.

    You forgot to include the no hitter against the Braves. What amazes me is that he has 5 PITCHES that he throws for strikes. Amazing!

    Not to mention a fastball near 100 that he can still throw in the late innings.

    Guy really is incredible.

    The "on pace for" stuff never works out, but Jimenez has a chance to have the greatest season for a SP in MLB history.

    It's mind boggling how good he's been.

    Sadly, there's a part of me that immediately suspects Jiminez of taking some form of PEDs ala Clemens or Gagne. Hopefully that's not the case.

    I mean YOU'RE BEAT before you even step in the box ... you know it, he knows it, everybody knows it.

    Really the best you can do is hope your SP can throw up a bunch of zeros as well, hope you can have patient AB's throughout the lineup and work him into a high pitch count, then beat Colorado's bullpen late.

    Same formula you had to deploy verses Pedro back in the day, but easier said than done.
    serious question.. have you honestly ever seen him pitch?

    Why do you ask that?

    You know Jimenez throws 2 plus FBs. The one that hits 100 mph is the four seamer while the mid-to-high 90s FB is the 2 seamer with movement.

    So I don't know why you're calling out Ham on this. I didn't see anything inacurate with his post.

    There should be a Fantasy League Owner Hall of Shame.

    Absolutely.

    I've had him since draft day. He's been absolutely lights out.

    Jimenez looks like a young Dominican Dwight Gooden out there. The late action on his fastball is insane

    Ubaldo is having a great season, but I'm not ready to compare him to Pedro. The beauty and genius of Pedro in his prime was that he new how to locate his pitches better than anyone I've ever seen. He only had 2 maybe 3 pitches to and that's what made him even more great! Ubaldo has 4 OR 5 PITCHES he can throw for strikes. I'm not sure who I can fairly compare him to.
