The graphics next to each team are called “sparklines.” They depict each team’s performance over the last month. Each “up” bar is a victory and a “down” bar is a loss. There are horizontal lines for home games and gray bars represent games decided by two runs or less. Other team graphs and stats can be found on our Team Page.

Yesterday’s Home Runs

The following stats are provided by Hit Tracker, which logs the projected distance of each home run (if it flew uninterrupted back to field level) and its “standard” distance, which is corrected for weather conditions.

THT’s Stats

Would you be surprised to find out that Jon Papelbon, who has allowed only one run in 23 innings, has “created” more runs than Albert Pujols? I’m talking about Pitching Runs Created, a stat that expresses a pitcher’s performance on the same scale as Runs Created. A combined list of Runs Created and Pitching Runs Created is a pretty good list of which players have done the most for their team.

Player       Team    POS      PRC/RC
