First Place

I'll add the requisite recap graphics and tables in a few hours, but use this to chat about the Mets taking sole possession of first place in the NL East for the first time since forever.

Quick notes:

  • Oliver Perez: back on track?
  • Carlos Delgado: any chance the Mets pick up his option instead of giving untold sums to Dunn or Teixeira?
  • Jamie Moyer: what the hell?
  • Jimmy Rollins: suck it, biotch?

Big winners: Carlos Delgado, +25.7% WPA, Oliver Perez, +24.1% WPA
Big losers: Ramon Castro, -9.0% WPA, Damion Easley, -8.4% WPA
Teh aw3s0mest play: Delgado comes up huge in the 8th, +34.3% WPA
Teh sux0rest play: Werth goes yard, -18.9% WPA
Total pitcher WPA: +46.2%
Total batter WPA: +3.8%
