RAB: Losing Late vs. Losing Early

+

Which is easier to handle: watching your team losing from the start or staying in it most of the way until they fall off a cliff? River Avenue Blues uses WPA graphs to look at two Yankees games lost in two different fashions. Which is more painful to watch is probably a subjective exercise (and I imagine the answer for most would be "equal but different"), but the point is that both are still just the same: a loss. Falling behind early and falling behind late is still just the same thing (there's an argument against the value of clutch in there I think). There's also in there a great example of how WPA tells the narrative of a game in simple, pictoral form. Mostly it's a great marriage of talking as a baseball fan and looking at the stats, which is the kind of think I really like to see.
