ERV Boxscore for May 9, at Arizona
This team can "answer"! From Guillen's homer in game 2 of the season to Saturday's touchdown after the Grand Slam to last night's Carroll to Johnson give and go, don't go messin' with this team's lead.
But the casualty lists keep getting longer -- word is that Guzman may be out for a week. Three weeks ago you could say "blessing in disguise", but I doubt Carroll can play 2B and SS at the same time. It feels like we are flying in a plane really fast and parts keep flying off, and the crew is busy in the back with some duck tape and string.
Note: Take a look at Ryan Church's line. ERVPA is a sum of the runs the average team scores in the situations in which Church came to the plate. In Church's three appearances, the average team scores 0.28 runs, 0.11 runs, and 0.11 runs. What did he produce from these meager morsels? 1.49 runs! His Return on Investment is over 300%! I'm pretty sure this is the highest of the year. By comparison, the highest for the year for the team is betwen 15 and 18 %. Ryan Church needs to play more!
ERV Win: Johnson
ERV Loss: Clayton
