0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

How do necklaces and calm eyes play into the discussion? What about the ability to look smooth while coolly jogging down a ball you just kicked across the outfield?

You also have to determine if the player was generational, drafted out of high school, and whether or not he was a Yankees prospect at any point in his career. These are all keys to making this a well-rounded stat, and I will not support it until they incorporated into the measurement.

Also, you can continue to call it swagger, but it needs to be measured in jeters or the common man will never understand it.
