However doesn't WPA accrue during losses?
This theory may be totally off the mark.
But how many times in a game thread, have we heard "and the Reds wasted another great pitching performance by ______".
If Latos pitches 9 shutout innings but Ondrusek blows the game in the 10th...what value did Latos performance truly have other than eating 9 innings. It was nice, but it was for naught ----> so was it valuable?
Now again, this is only discussing value to the team. As far as say the Cy Young is concerned, those stats should help his case.
