Last Friday's defeat of the Mets once again allowed my favourite National, Jayson Werth, to shine. However, it is also a game that demonstrates how quickly baseball contest can turn around with a lead of three runs or less. Had it been up to Rafael Soriano alone, the Mets would have tied the game. In this case, Soriano got a save that should have gone to Werth.

New National Greg Dobbs is perhaps treated unfairly in this game. His timely hit scored him a bit, but being thrown out at home took him into negative territory on my LI Win Values. Was that really his fault?
