The Smallest Sample Size
Game recaps with a sabermetric bent.
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.
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.
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!
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.
