What do these graphs mean (this is a link)?
- We got him for GUZMAN?! Tanner Roark (+31.1%) has another pretty good outing, going perfect through 5 and getting a complete game shutout on 3 hits with 8 Ks and a walk. Awesome.
- Rally? Early?! WHAT?! Adam LaRoche (+11.3%) is mired in his traditional April slump, going 1-3 with a walk and a first-inning RBI single to get the Nats on the board (+12.6%)
- Bounce it off the pitcher!! Ian Desmond (+9.4%) is 3-4 with an RBI double in the 1st (+9.4%).
I think Roark's taken a real step, here. A step beyond, if you will. And I further think we should dance about it.
