If it were a big game question I'd rather have Matsui and Sheff than either of them and ARod. Yanks building a rally against Cleveland on Saturday after a 3 run 8th inning bomb by Matsui, Bernie singles on first pitch, Jeter reaches...Cano can't get the bunt down, screws up a hit and run (which joe should've been shot for calling) and hits into the preverbial 4-6-3. Womack moves to 3rd, Sheff gets a walk, and sure enough...ARod on the first pitch grounds out lazily to short with the tying run on 3rd, the winning run on 1st and 2 out.
Moral of the story. I was literally screaming for Matsui to have been at the plate there.
Yankees 1-2 of clutch hitting is Matsui and Sheff. I'd put them just behind Ortiz and Manny.
