First of all, he needs a nickname.
All No. 1 starters worth their No. 1's need a nickname. That's just good marketing.
How about U-Dog? The U-Train? U-The Man?
Indians manager Manny Acta probably doesn't care. He's just happy to have a bonafide No. 1 starter in his rotation.
The rest of us can call Ubaldo Jimenez whatever we want. Acta plans on calling on him every fifth day.
Not that Acta doesn't have a pet name for the new lead dog in his rotation.
"The Big U," said Acta.
