Game 1 WPA: Bryce is risen! Nat 2, Marlins 0

He made never have been dead, but Harper sure made his presence known today. That Strasburg kid may have even been better, although watch that P2C, Stephen!


  • Coming again in glory: Bryce Harper (+19.9%) is 2-4 with 2 HRs, with all the offense.
  • Actual baseball Jesus: Stephen Strasburg (+39.5%) does the majority of the winning today, pitching 7 scoreless with only 3 Ks but no BBs. P2C is a false idol!
  • Harrowing/Not Harrowing: Tyler Clippard (+6.8%) was in vintage form, walking one and fanning one, while newbie Rafael Soriano (+6.7%) strikes out 2 in their scoreless innings of relief.
  • Also playing: Wilson Ramos (+4.8%) and Ian Desmond (+0.9%) are the only other Nat to record positive WPA, both going 1-2 with a walk.

(H/t to Leah's Friend Bill for the title)
