Curveballs for Jobu

Curveballs for Jobu is Off Base Percentage's daily trip around the ballparks.

Today's honorary bat boy is Kurt Kepshire.

Hey kids, Derwood got called in early for work. One of the knights called in sick at Medieval Times and he's stuck on jousting duty now. So, I'm back in charge of Jobu today. That means you get to stay up late tonight and we're having candy for dinner. Let's take a quick spin around baseball before I put this scary movie on for you.

Angels 10, Yankees 2. You knew I'd have to lead off with this. My beloved Halos roughed up Derwood's evil Yankees thanks to homers from Napoli, Matsui and the 120 pound Maicer Izturis. Sean O'Sullivan made his first start of the season for the Angels highlighting why they probably aren't making the playoffs.

Indians 4, Twins 3. The Tribe just keep rolling right along with their 6th straight win and remain unbeaten since the All Star break. It appears that the passing of Lou Brown might actually vault them into the playoffs this year. *checks standings* Okay never mind, I was way off.

Pirates 11, Brewers 9. Pedro Alvarez hit a grand slam and a solo shot and struck out twice for the Pirates. Jim Edmonds went 4-5 with a home run and 3 RBI for the Brewers. In other news, Jim Edmonds is still playing professional baseball.

Orioles 11, Rays 10. The 13 inning, 4 and a half hour marathon ended with Julio Lugo singling in Cesar Izturis. With that play, this became the most Izturis-iest post in the history of Off Base.

Rockies 10, Marlins 0. Hey, the Rockies and Marlins played.
