7th inning+ home run's don't matter much in blowouts, not to mention there are tons of other possible outcomes of an at bat that need to be taken into consideration, leading to...

...how do you explain the fact that Trout leads Cabrera in WPA (5.61 to 4.40)? WPA is deisgned to take the context of a player's each and every at bat into account and determine how it affected their team's chances of winning the particular game. Trout beats Cabrera in this stat which, once again, takes into account the entire season's effect on a team's winning percentage based on the context of each and every at bat!
