>Saw a fun stat this morning.  Colorado Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez has more road wins this season (8) than the Baltimore Orioles (7).  I’ll wait while you read that again….

Jimenez is 13-1 after 14 starts this season.  His one loss?  A 2-0 loss to the Dodgers in which he gave up one run in 7 innings.  Jimenez’s ERA has skyrocketed to 1.15 after allowing 6 earned runs in three starts this month… almost as many as he allowed in April and May… COMBINED!

Oriole fans aren’t too surprised at the dominance that Jimenez has displayed in comparison.  During on-street interviews that never really occurred, Ricky Madeupguy said, “U-bald-y is pitchin’ really good this season.  I bet not even Miguel Tea-ha-dah could hit off of him.”

In spite of the success, living in Colorado has proven to be mildly dangerous for Jimenez.  During a run through the mountains last week, an unruly mass of youth came out and jeered at him, “Go on up, Ubaldo!” they said, “Go on up, Ubaldo!”  Thankfully, Jimenez is a man of faith and called upon the Lord in his time of distress, and two bears came out of the woods and mauled 42 of the youth.
