On the Rocks: Can Ubaldo Jimenez reach 25 wins?

After making the San Francisco Giants feel small, Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez is now 3 wins away from the 20 win benchmark and 8 wins away from the 25 victory milestone.

Can he do it?

His remaining will likely be against the:

New York Mets: .251AVG 86HR 436RBI 93SB

Milwaukee Brewers: .261AVG 134HR 487RBI 54SB

Arizona Diamondbacks: .254AVG 121HR 474RBI 62SB (X2)

Los Angeles Dodgers: .258AVG 79HR 435RBI 66SB (X2)

San Diego Padres: .251AVG 83HR 437RBI 91SB (X2)

Cincinnati Reds: .273AVG 125HR 518RBI 65SB

St Louis Cardinals: .265AVG 108HR 453RBI 61SB

Ten more starts will give him the opportunity of a 27-2 record. He can only afford 2 loses or no decisions if he is going to win 25.Taking on the NL West rivals 6 times can potentially be a speed bump in Ubaldo's road to 25 wins but its the foes of the NL Central that are the biggest threat to his quest.

As far as the Cy Young is concerned, winning 20 games can be enough for him to win the award and 25 wins is virtually impossible to dispute, but as long as Florida Marlins pitcher Josh Johnson (10-4 1.96ERA 147.0IP 151SO) has an ERA below 2, Ubaldo Jimenez is no lock for the Cy Young award.
