- 2.23

second worst in the MLB among 3rd basemen.

I though I just read someone posting about his good OPS in "clutch" situations.

If you check Tav's link, you'll see those aren't thoughts from my own head -- rather I read that exact article, and figured I'd post the portion of it I found most interesting to see what people thought. So, if you're saying nice post meaning "thanks for bringing this up" I accept all credit. But I did no work what so ever. :-D

Ah, you tricked me! You simply copied and pasted!

In that case, I guess it's a good thing you don't have an expert icon. ;-7

Thanks for bringing it up though. I have tried explaning how clutch can be calculated well previously but couldn't give any links (as I read it in BP's book). Now it's there for the world to see!

This might be interesting to look at as career-long stat, adjusted for the player's overall rates (Is a guy who hits .350/.450/.600 in clutch situations instead of his usual .330/.400/.550 really better than a guy hitting .300/.400/.500 in the clutch vs. overall numbers of .270/.330/..400 really more "clutch"? Not in my book.), but as it is presented above, it may be interesting to look at but it doesn't really mean anything.

Get a bigger sample size and adjust for overall numbers. Then we'll talk. :-)

not being a power hitter he may not have come up as big in his top 15 chances, but any clutch thread deserves a mention of the great Michael Young.

over the past THREE YEARS he is hitting .373 with RISP and .415 with RISP and 2 outs.

19/38 (500) with the bases loaded.,
