  1. Kyle Drabek was pretty solid in his debut, I did a piece on his start against Minny with some pitch FX data as well.

    All in all a good weekend in baseball!

  2. oh yeah, and Zach Britton was called up and pitched pretty good for the O’s.

  3. I like the approach, Joe, but since you asked for suggestions…. Maybe instead of summarizing games or series, you could just list the biggest WPA plays, like you’ve done here, with some stories around those plays. In other words, I guess, just don’t feel compelled to do too much. Maybe top 5 WPA plays from a given day or weekend, with the stories of the games?

  4. Britton did pitch well, but I kinda expected him to, even with the added pressure of it being his first big league start. I was more “impressed” by Chris Tillman’s outing in game 2; yeah, he had control issues and got into too many deep counts, which led to him hitting 101 pitches after only 6 innings, but at least when his fastball got up in the zone, it was high enough to be relatively unhittable. I’ll take a chin-high fastball for a ball over a belt-high fastball over the wall any day of the week.

  5. high WPA plays neglects pitching (except the closer).

  6. The triple play increased the Indians’ chances by about 20%. Pretty cool to see the defense featured in these graphs.

  7. I can imagine “live play” graphs coming soon, e.g., steep climb up the X axis for when Zobrist rocked Gregg’s 9th inning pitch and then, suddenly and irrevocably, straight down to 100% Baltimore when Markakis made that amazing catch.
