Game 113 WPA: Free passes. Nats lose.

New, comments

NN did okay, but the walk came back to hurt. Storen did okay, but a HBP came back to hurt, as did an error. As for the batting, well, not okay.

It's totally Matty's fault that the team didn't hit. Somehow.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • 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?
