ERV Boxscore for August 4, vs. Los Angeles

I haven't forgotten about the Florida series or the first two games of this Dodgers series (I'll post those boxscores soon), but this game was so enjoyable I had to post this boxscore tonight. Note that none of the Dodgers hitters had postive RV or WV -- the first time I've seen that -- a good measure of the dominance of John Patterson.

ERV Win: Patterson
ERV Loss: Sanchez, Robles, Bradley and Navarro

3 Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Church's GIDP in the 1st (-1.85)
(2) Castilla's Double in the 4th (1.64)
(3) Wilson's Single to load the bases in the 1st (0.76)

I think how good Patterson was can be summed up in one at-bat and that was Jeff Kent's second K (in I believe the 6th). We all know that Patterson's change-curve is his real K pitch and he got 4 Dodgers out looking at it before Kent came up this time. Patterson quickly goes 0-2 on Kent with a change and a fastball, so Kent is completely looking for the offspeed curve seeing how it has been working so well for Patterson all night. John throws a 94 mile an hour heater right across the inside corner to complete the three-pitch strikeout and as Kent's knees buckled, he just gave this look like he had been totally picked apart. It was a thing of beauty.

Patterson pitched the second best game of the entire year in the NL last nite: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stats/bestgames

And that game because the best game in the NL (which also leads the majors) if iron glove Preston Wilson doesn't drop an out.

" And that game [becomes] the best game in the NL (which also leads the majors) if iron glove Preston Wilson doesn't drop an out."

Or if the official scorer actually figured out that being fair to the home team pitcher is more important than soothing the feelings of an over-rated new member of the team who whined all game about striking out early on. There's a note in my scorecard that says "B.S. E7" next to that "double".

You will note that the ERV Boxscore reflects that Wilson did receive a fielding debit for that play, and the Dodger batter received a debit for a fly out, thus accurately reflecting John Patterson's contribution on that play.

So, as a labor saving device, you've started only blogging good news . . .

Actually, I'm revamping Win Value to make it more accurate. I've spent the past few nights working on that instead of entering game data. Though I am watching and listening for extraordinary plays, and suffering along.
