(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Rock steady: Stephen Strasburg (+35.4%) throws 8 scoreless, fanning 10 and walking 2. He's 2-3 with a run scored at the plate.
  • TWO HUNDO: Jayson Werth (+22.3%) bounces a line-drive solo shot off of the HR sculpture in dead center with one out in the 7th for the winning run (21.8%)
  • Parade of stat-padding junk timers: Wilson Ramos (0.5%) hits a meaningless solo bomb of his own in the next AB to run up his numbers (+13.3%), while Bryce Harper (+3.5%) hits his second career grand slam a few batters later (+14.4%), and Ryan Zimmerman (-6.3%) "me too"s with a final solo shot after the WPA hamsters stopped paying attention (+0.8%).
