Curveballs for Jobu

Curveballs for Jobu is Offbasepercentage's daily trip around the ballparks.

Today's honorary bat boy is Quinton Antoine "True QAM" McCracken and he's here to tell you that Carlos Gonzalez is good at baseball.

What's up kids? I'm bringing you a super late edition of Jobu today because Derwood spent all day at a bindle packing seminar at the ATL hobo conference. I'll probably be in charge tomorrow too seeing as how they have a big canned bean exhibit.

Rockies 10, Dodgers 5. The aforementioned CarGo went 3-4 with 2 home runs taking him to 29 on the season. Gonzalez is hitting .326/.360/.595 for the season and makes the Rox a dangerous team next year if Tulo can stay healthy. Manny Ramirez was ejected after the first pitch he saw when he pinch hit in the 6th inning. A classic Manny send off for his final Dodgers' plate appearance.

Orioles 1, Angels 0. Jered Weaver gave up the lone run in 8 innings of 11 strikeout ball. He was no match for the Buck Showalter express though. Showalter is now 6-0 against the Angels this season which makes me both drink and cry.

Phillies 5, Padres 0. Cole Hamels cruised through 8 innings of 4-hit shutout ball and it's a good thing because Chase Utley isn't helping at all. Utley continues to struggle after his return from the DL going 0-4 with 2 strikeouts. He must still be hurt, there's no other explanation.

Royals 6, Indians 2. Wilson Betemit went 0-2 with 3 walks and has a .420 OBP this year. That is all.

Mets 5, Astros 1. Who would have thought R.A. Dickey and Josh Thole would be dragging the Mets to wins in late August? Thole went 2-3 with a home run. Dickey went 2-3 with 2 RBI and pitched 7 innings of 1 run ball. I have got to learn how to throw a knuckleball before I turn 35.
