Sorry for the delay on this one. The WPA graph for Game 1 is incorrect at FanGraphs.com (it's a duplicate of Game 2), so I was holding off posting until it was fixed. I got tired of waiting, so I sent an e-mail to the folks at FanGraphs.com and will post the graph as soon as it has been corrected.
Game 1: Giants 6, Mets 4
Orlando Hernandez's line from Game 1:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 6.0 8 5 5 3 5 1 104-62 38Hernandez was -- how you say? -- not so good. As in his previous start against the Marlins, Hernandez had a lot of trouble putting hitters away. When he was able to get ahead in the count he would constantly work the count full before retiring the batter or, more often, allowing a hit or a walk. Is he better than Jose Lima? Definitely. Has he been good? Not even close.

Tom Glavine's line from Game 2:

Game 3: Giants 7, Mets 6
Steve Trachsel's line from Game 3:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 7.0 6 1 1 1 3 0 101-66 63One of Trachsel's best starts of the year, wasted because the Mets couldn't manage more than three runs against Matt Morris. Lastings Milledge had his best day as a pro, going 3-for-4 with an intentional walk, a double and an extra-innings, game-tying homerun with two outs and two strikes in the tenth. Mets lost anyway, largely because Willie Randolph has a hard time figuring out when his relievers have nothing (mostly Duaner Sanchez, but also the second inning of Feliciano to some extent).
