It is when you get the hits and what you do for the team.
Look through the raw numbers as stats do not mean diddly if their context is not understood.
So in 58 postseason games he had a nice 4 games in 98. Anyone in a 58 game span is going to put together a few games. You guys walked over that 98 SD in 4. You would have won with WRVERES at 3b.
When you get the hits? Context? So a hr in the 9th is worth more then one in another inning?
Scott hit a nice hr in 01 off a scared 23 year old (Kim) true. It was a nice hit. But Scott also hit 167 in that series, with a 167 oba. It means every time he walked to the plate, he was out 83.3% of the time. You can't win if everybody does that. Btw, if Scott in game 7 in the 9th inning, takes that dp grounder and takes the dp, instead off just going to 1st, Rivera likely gets out of it and NY wins. Not a clutch play by Scott in a big moment. 1 WS hr in a (4-24) series, and one nice 4 game stretch in 98 (9-16), out of 58 games doesn't do it for me. You are forgetting the tons of failures he also had in those other games. How bad is a 278 oba in 58 games? If every NYY did that, you guys would never ever get out of round 1 again.
