Tango looks at CarGon's catch in terms of win/run expectancy

1

Interesting angle on Carlos Gonzalez's catch of Pujols's long fly. Despite the two runs scoring, CG's catch likely saved .87 to .89 runs. The play went down in the Fangraphs WPA book as + 0.35 for Pujols due to the out and two runs scoring, but the WPA book doesn't account for the fact that it would have been much worse had CG not made the catch.
