Ubaldo Jimenez will take a few days off after drilling his former teammate
The folks in the Major League Baseball offices weren't thrilled with Jimenez, and plunked HIM with a 5-game suspension.
The issue sprung from Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez getting lucrative contract extensions, while Jimenez didn't. Instead, he was traded to the Indians.
Tulowitzki's comments on the situation: "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 that you don't think this is the best place for you.' That was kind of the case with him."
Rockies manager Jim Tracy said he lost all respect for Jimenez, and quite frankly, I don't blame him. At this point, the Rockies are probably thrilled that they got this nut job off their hands while he still had some trade value.
