Just to give you an idea

about Garrett Jones' crazy-low BABIP in August: in order to balance out his August and end the year at his career BABIP (±.300, majors and minors), he'll have to BABIP .483 in September. He had a nice night tonight, but I think we can agree he's unlikely to BABIP anywhere near .500, which illustrates what was so crazy about his August.

He was clearly pressing by the end of the month, but a game like tonight's should settle him some. It will be very interesting to see if he can hit himself back into the core group. His counting numbers have been OK; a wOBA of .360 for this month would end his season at .323, which is subpar for a 1B (his bat and glove play better in RF, alas), but would merit him another few months to show what he's really made of, at least.
