just gonna throw something out there... David Ortiz leads mlb in game winning/tying hits since last year's AS break.
i think right now its close.... Ortiz has been more "clutch" (using that kinda loosely
) if i had to.. id got for Manny. he has "better" numbers than Vlad right now... Manny has been the best and the most productive hitter in the AL up until now. his numbers speak for themselves. hes second in the AL in obp (only .001 behind the big hurt) and by a significant margin the 1st in AL in slug.
first in both rbis and HR's. 4th in BA.
the only person in all of MLB to be in the top 5 in his league in BA, HR's and ribbies.
some pretty convincing evidence imo.
Vlad hasnt been particularly hot for the past few games but i think Vlad's gonna make a serious run. at the end i think it'll be one of these four guys... Vlad, Manny, David and A-rod. i'll gove Manny the nod for now
