The Smallest Sample Size

Game recaps with a sabermetric bent.

TSSS 08/08: Bruce Chen dominates you!

There are plenty of interesting happenings across baseball. Big Time Timmy Jim could be back to his old self. The Pittsburgh Pirates are baseball's best, and Bruce Chen proves that ain't nobody got time for the Boston Red Sox.

TSSS 8/7/13: AL MVP Explosion

Chris Davis blasted another home run, two games finished in dramatic fashion in extra innings, and two other games were decided in the ninth inning.

The Smallest Sample Size 8/7/13: Lucrative Lagares

Juan Lagares had himself a game last night and the Mets were able to ride his coattails and secure a win. We really need to talk about the Braves and Tigers. Can anyone stop them? Also, another day, another bullpen implosion in Anaheim.

The Smallest Sample Size 8/6/13: Upton re-rmerges

It doesn't look like anyone can stop the Braves right now as Justin Upton has reawakened. Chris Perez melted down during a very important interdivisional matchup last night. And one team shocked fans everywhere and shut out a league-best offense.

The Smallest Sample Size 8/5/13

A.J. Burnett's complete game last night was just another cherry on top of an incredible year for the veteran. Pittsburgh is holding onto first in the NL Central but the St. Louis offense is apparently seeing nothing but beachballs at the plate.

TSSS 08/03/13: Low scores across the board

In last night's games, Jake Peavy made his Boston debut, Manny Machado hit a couple of milestones, and David Price gets back to being David Price. We cover all of that and more as we recap the action from Saturday night.

The Smallest Sample Size 8/2/2013: 1% is enough

We were able to enjoy a true pitching duel between Matt Cain and Cole Hamels, the St. Louis Cardinals got their revenge, and a team with a one percent chance to win their game in the bottom of the ninth actually won.

Two doubleheaders within the same division showcased two match-ups of teams on opposite sides of the spectrum. Take a look at yesterday's baseball through a leverage and win probability scope!

The Smallest Sample Size 07/30/13: Walk-Off Mania

David Price stifled the Red Sox for the second time in five days and Jason Giambi is still playing baseball and smashing dingers somehow. Four of the nine games on Monday were decided by a walk-off hit. Recount yesterday's game with pLI and WPA!

The Smallest Sample Size 07/29/13: Puig-Out

Alfonso Soriano and Derek Jeter led the Yankees to a come-from-behind win. Nick Franklin put Seattle on his back. And everyone's favorite rookie capitalized an incredible comeback for the Dodgers. Recap Sunday's games with leverage index and WPA.
