Once again the strong point of the relief corps has been their ability to prevent inherited runners from scoring, allowing only two of fourteen to score this week.
Once again, walks were their undoing here, and were a big reason why they allowed 35.6% (.356 OBP) of these batters to reach base.

 August 6, 2004 - Reliever Evaluation Tools Report
This report rates relievers according to a variety of metrics, all of which are based on the notion of run expectation -- how many runs are expected to score given the bases/outs state when the reliever entered and/or left the game.
The advantage of these metrics is that they do a reasonable job of handling two factors that are poorly handled by traditional statistics based on runs charged: how the reliever handles his inherited runners, and the support the reliever gets when he turns runners over to others.
Overall reliever performance is measured by Adjusted Runs Prevented (ARP), a park-adjusted extension to a tool developed by Gary Skoog and Steve Schulman, which measures how run expectation changes between the time the reliever enters the game and the time he exits.
