Ubaldo Jimenez Sparks Brawl Against Former Team
Ubaldo Jimenez's departure from Colorado was not a pretty one. The 2010 NL All Star Game Starter opted out of his options for the next two years with Colorado because he was upset he didn't get an extension like SS Troy Tulowitzki.
Tulowitzki commented to the Denver Post last week on Jimenez saying "If someone doesn't want to be here we always say, 'Please, go up to the manager and tell him you want to leave or you don't think this is the best place for you.' That was kind of the case with him." As of Saturday, Rockies manager Jim Tracy said that he hoped the Jimenez issue had been "put to bed."
I guess it hadn't been.
