The A’s beat Johan Santana and the Twins today, 3-2. ESPN’s announcers chose Frank Thomas as their Game MVP. It’s hard to argue against a guy who hit two home runs, but the WPA leader of the game was actually Barry Zito, who only gave up one run over eight innings. Zito’s WPA was .341 and Thomas’s was .195. Actually, Thomas finished third on the A’s in WPA; Huston Street was second (.228). Santana led the Twins in WPA with .159.
