(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Dealing: Gio Gonzalez (+27.5%) puts together 8 innings of shutout ball, fanning 6 and walking one. More like this, please.
  • I really want to believe: Ian Desmond (+18.5%) follows the Z-man's lead with a two-run shot in the second for the early lead (+18.1%) and a junk-time solo bomb in the ayeth (+0.2%). He also has a SB.
  • Speaking of the Z-man: Ryan Zimmerman (+13.1%) is 2-4 with a pair of doubles.

This morning's WPA brought to you by anything is possible:
