- Classic form: Jordan Zimmermann (+16.8%) gives up 1 run in 7 IP with 9 Ks and a single walk. Of course the walk came around to score. Enjoy your loss, loser! You gotta go yard, yourself, if you want a win.
- You can only put so much blame on the pitching: Bryce Harper (-9.0%), Wilson Ramos (-9.5%), Yunel Escobar (-11.8%) and Ryan Zimmerman (-10.7%) combine to go 0-14 with 5 Ks and 3 LOB.
- See, it can be done: Michael Taylor (+8.4%) leads the Nats in WPA tonight by actually comitting offense, going 2-3 with a double.
- Clown relief, bro: Drew Storen (-9.5%) gets tagged with a meltdown in the aeyth for letting in two runs, one of which reached on a HBP, the other scoring on an error.
Today's WPA brought to you by when subtext is prominent enough to become the text as a form of ironic commentary and conscious subversion of the implied text, is the text actually the subtext?
