How did Astudillo have a positive WPA when he made a couple of poor plays? He was thrown out at home because he forgot that he's a tortuga who thinks he's a hare and he didn't run hard. And then he gave up a run on the double steal by throwing to second and everyone was safe. I thought in that situation you're supposed to just give up the stolen base to protect the plate.


I don't believe either of those plays are considered by WPA.

Did I read that right?  I don't think a 325 foot ball should be a home run anyway.

 

I just watched the replay of that shot... It was 325 at the point it hit that speaker. That would have been close to 500 feet had it actually landed on it's original trajectory. It was a monster shot.
