Curveballs for Jobu 4/16/2011

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

Today's honorary bat boy is Tim Unroe.

Cardinals 11, Dodgers 2.
Looks like that Pujols fella is starting to warm up. Albert went 2-5 with a pair of homers. What's weird though is that Lance Berkman hit his fifth and sixth home runs of the season. I don't think there's anyway he keeps this up and he plays right field like he's cemented to the field but so far that signing looks pretty good.

Angels 4, White Sox 3.
After a rain delay, Jered Weaver gave up a two-run home run to Adam Dunn and saw his ERA baloon to 1.30. And he only struck out four so I'm starting to worry about him. He did run his record to 4-0 and I'm beginning to get cautiously optimistic about the Angels 2011 chances in the West.

Rangers 5, Yankees 3.
The Yankees took turns hitting into double plays (6!) and the Rangers got 8 strong innings from Matt Harrison to keep rolling right along. Damn, the Rangers drive me crazy.

Padres 4, Astros 2.
Isn't that adorable? They think they're real MLB teams.

Royals 6, Mariners 5.
Jeff Francoeur, hitting cleanup for the Royals, went 3-4 with a home run and zero strikeouts. He's hitting .327/.339/.509 so far. As soon as I see some locusts, I'm declaring Apocalypse.

Other games, but down here....

Indians 8, Orioles 2.
Blue Jays 7, Red Sox 6.
Rays 5, Twins 2.
Tigers 8, A's 4 (10).
Nationals 4, Brewers 3 (10).

Pirates 6, Reds 1.
Braves, Mets PPD
Rockies 5, Cubs 0.
Giants 5, Diamondbacks 2.
