(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Enjoy your loss, loser: Stephen Strasburg (+1.8%) gives up 2 runs in 6 IP with 8 Ks and 2 walks. Quality start ain't enough, pal, gotta throw a shutout with a meritorious penalty run to win.
  • On-base machine: Bryce Harper (+7.2%) is 2-3 with a walk.
  • False-hope provider: Yunel Escobar (+4.9%) hits a homer to lead off the game (+10.9%).
  • Unhelpful: Ryan Zimmerman (-10.9%) is 0-4 with 3 Ks with 2 LOB. Anthony Rendon (-9.8%) is 0-4 with 2 Ks.
  • Unhelpful despite a double: Michael Taylor (-13.2%) is 1-4 with a two-out double in the 9th and 2 LOB.
  • NOT! HELPING! Felipe Rivero (-8.8%) only gets two outs in the 7th, letting in another run to put the game impossibly far out of reach and earn a meltdown.

Today's WPA brought to you by no change in the weather:
