18 because the offense will stall on multiple occasions. He shouldn't even be 7-1 right now. It should be 8-0 or 7-0.

Remember, the baseball season is looooong. He will go through some tough spells. He's having an historic run, by Rockies standards. If he ends up with 20 wins, I'll be happy.

I think Jimenez will probably hit 20 wins on the year.

35 wins, 3 complete game shutouts in the world series including a perfect game in game 7.

I seriously think he will be the NL CY winner, and is a lock to start the all star game.

I give him 22 or 23 wins on the year. He generally only needs 2 or 3 runs of support to notch the win.

17. History shows it is very tough to get to 20 wins with a 5 man rotation. I am not sure the Rockies lineup is good enough to win enough of the 2-1 and 3-2 games he is pitching in over the course of an entire season. Now if Tulo comes around a little that could change.

You also gotta be a little worried about him breaking down with the amount of pitches he's throwing every outing. For a guy that throws 100, you'd think more people would swing and miss.

Since earned runs became official in 1912 in the NL and 1913 in the AL, Jimenez is just the 5th pitcher to win 8 of his 1st 9 starts of a season and have an ERA under 1.00. The last was Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 who won the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year that season.

Ubaldo Jimenez - 2010
Fernando Valeznuela - 1981
Juan Marichal - 1961
Hoyt Wilhelm - 1959
Eddie Cicotte - 1919

Can you even imagine how huge a Cy Young in Colorado would be?

My God, I never thought I would even think it possible.

I picked 20. But I haven't seen signs of even a little sputtering. He pitched his worst game of the season a start or two ago, and gave up three hits.

He's not going to finish with an ERA below 1. But he's having as good a quarter season run as anyone I can remember seeing.

oh i agree, but its still a little early to be seeing any sputtering. with him throwing so good it may be a curse later because he is throwing alot of innings as it could lead to him getting tired later in season.

He'll get used to it. He got cramps because of dehydration... something that takes a complicated remedy, drinking fluids.

ERA down to 0.88 and if the Rockies wrap this up in the 9th that'll be 9-1 in 10 games

Man what a pitcher. If only De LA Rosa could get back and back to his old form we could finally dump Hammel and would have one hell of a rotation if Cook ever gets it figured out.

Ubaldo has reached bar status with me. Every time he's pitching I make every effort to stay up late and hit the bar and watch him. I mean, another 8 innings of shut out ball tonight and he didn't even have his best stuff. The guy is some kind of special player.

More than 2/3rds of the season to go and he is already to 9 wins. 20 is looking like a cinch, I hope to see a Bob Gibson like era at the end of it all. I'm really encouraged by Francis too, I really thought his arm was done and he would sputter.

Jiminez, Francis, De La Rosa, and Cook could be great come playoff time.

Cook needs to get it together, he's leaving way too many pitches up.

Hopefully Chacin can continue his great start and avoid big innings, he's got great stuff as well.

Ubaldo, if De La Rosa comes back to his '09 form, Francis, Chacin and Cook.

A solid rotation, and one I didn't expect this from. I thought Francis was done and on his way to Shawn Estes territory.
Hopefully De La Rosa comes back healthy and firing on all cylinders.

He won 15 last year and was not nearly as dominant as he is now. Even if he's the Ubaldo of last year the rest of the season he hits 20 wins
