Reaction to the Ubaldo Jimenez Deal

Clevelinks, Feb. 18: Ubaldo Jimenez Signs with Orioles

In case you hadn’t heard, Ubaldo Jimenez is headed to Baltimore to become a member of the Orioles. The deal, which is reportedly for four years and around $50-million, means that the Indians will need to officially find a way to replace the 182.2 innings Jimenez worked last season. It’s time for someone to step up in a big way if the Indians want to compete in 2014.

That said, the internet is buzzing with reactions over Jimenez’s signing with the Orioles. The general consensus is that there is no consensus. People either love this deal for the Orioles or they hate it. Fans of the Indians are also mixed on how to feel. Some feel as if the team dodged a bullet by not guaranteeing Jimenez eight figures per yer. Others feel as if this is just another in a long list of players to leave Cleveland for greener pastures.

Obviously, this seems like as good a topic as any to kick off this edition of Clevelinks.
