Red Sox WPA through 4/28

An odd game indeed tonight. Clement was shaky from the start, and never really settled down. His control was abysmal, with six walks and lots of balls in the dirt, but he still managed to strike out four, and his four earned runs might have stood up if the Sox had not gone 2-for-19 with RISP. Varitek's "triple" will make the season highlight reel - Jonny Gomes might still be waiting for that ball to come down, with his arms in the air and a blank look on his face.

In WPA-land, Clement takes most of the heat tonight, while Lowell's GIDP as the potential tying run in the ninth further cements his overall position in the basement for the season. The "Greek God of Walks" was the top contributor tonight, going 1-for-2 with 3 walks.
