  • Disaster start (for this year): Ross Detwiler (-11.5%) gives up 3 ER over 6 IP, with 4 Ks and 2BBs... a quality start, but not enough to win.
  • Slightly better than league average: Adam LaRoche (+15.0%) sneaks out a two-run dinger to get the Nats within one (+16.6%).
  • Particularly ineffectual: Mark DeRosa's 0-4 collects the most negative WPA (-15.6%), although Ian Desmond (-9.7%) and Steve Lombardozzi (-8.0%) are 0-8 in the 1 and 2 spots.

Bonus graph after the jump: Does Angel Hernandez need LASIK?

Again, the green shapes are called balls, the red are called strikes. The boxes are the rule book strike zones, the dashed boxes are the typical "as-called" zones to LH and RH hitters..

The zone is supposed to be a rectangle, Angel, not, uh, whatever it was you were doing.
