LBJ nah, you are safe lol.
Clutch exists, but only in small fragments. We could say Alous hr was a clutch hit. But over extended time, clutch does not exist, meaning there really isn't clutch players. Given enough chances, Alou will succeed and fail about the same in ANY scenerio. No sabermetric study yet has found clutch exists. If those clutch believers can show me proof clutch exists, i will gladly listen.
The best hitter in a given scenerio is easy, Bonds. He's the best hitter.
Man, Jeter has been clutch this year. Wasn't he 0-28? Oh, thats right, clutch believers NEVER look at the anti-clutch moments. They are still busy watching Jeters 20 foot toss to Posada to nail Posada.
