Well, one thing is certain - Bush didn't go to law school.


Even he was smarter than that. You got that right.

Yes, because Bush always made the right moves. WWBD?

So it's clear that we should expect some regression from Ubaldo Jimenez from this point forward. The question is how much? His strikeout rates are sustainable and I believe he can improve upon them. His walk rates are sustainable. Given the movement on his 2-seam, it seems that his home run/fly ball ratios are sustainable (at levels well below ML average).

He's been lucky on balls in play to an extent, but I think that happens when you continually saw people off with tough pitches on the inside part of the plate. My only concern is his dip in velocity. His customary 99 MPH fastball sat at 93-94 in San Diego last time out. Is this a case of arm fatigue and all of those 120+ pitch outings finally catching up to him? Hard to say, but worth considering at least.

FWIW, I feel that Felix Hernandez will be the best pitcher in baseball from now until the end of the year.

Just in looking at this picture more, it's striking the amount of deception that Jimenez brings with each pitch from the windup. He hides the ball better than pretty much every pitcher in today's game. It's not a stretch to say that this deception makes his fastball look even harder, and may explain some of the funny swings it seems to produce.

Very underrated part of his game, IMO.

Kinda looks like Obama from that stance.

On that note:

Have you been stimulated by Obama's package?

There are people who come here to hear what law school's all about. You can post about baseball elsewhere. Be considerate.

I can't even imagine how much it would suck to take a 101mph heater to the ribs.

So a quick anecdote to get the OPs advice on whether I should go to law school:

Last night I was working at my current position, which is overnight remodeling of fast food restaurants. I found myself at 3AM, with my head an inch from the urinal, jack hammering away at some piss/shit soaked tile that just wouldn't come up. In a moment of introspection and self analysis, I thought to myself "I would pay at least $150,000 to get out of this literal shithole, if only for three years."

Will you give me permission to go to law school? I promise to go right back to jack hammering nasty tile if I am forced to make only $50,000... during the day... in an office.

Steal of fantasy BB last year! I picked him up early on waivers. Clawed my way up to 1st heading into September, and then lost it on the 2nd to last day.

Rule #2: Never trust a man with an arm that's logged close to 500 innings in 2 seasons. It's bound to fall off sooner rather than later.

Plus, Jon Lester beat cancer. Fuck you cancer.

I feel like nobody on TLS can spot a flame anymore. So OP turned out just fine, went to a T14, has a job and everything, yet he is intimately familiar with all of the disgruntled Seton Hall grad sites?

Not saying OP is incorrect, just pointing out that he is most likely lying about who he is and what his credentials are.
