has also published a recent study suggesting that his former work on clutch hitting may not have been correct. A true propellerhead is always trying to learn and will therefore change directions when he understands there is better information and knowledge available.

What's kind of funny is that I visited his blog. It was somewhat active before the season started, but since things got going - no updates. Since all the preseason updates were primarily slams on KW's moves in one way or another, it kind of makes sense. But it's disappointing, I always thought that regardless of his POV, he tried to be fact-based & somewhat rational. But ignoring things when there's not an opportunity to slam the GM is just plain bias.

What's the deal with this article? It just says that so-and-so conducted some research and Eddie Murray among others was proven to be clutch. How about some numbers for chrissake? I clicked the Eddie Murray link for further information but it's just a picture of him. I'm convinced. :rolleyes:

I do support the theory though.

The elegant but compelling lavender background did it for me.

Eddie Murray was certainly a gamer. I remember seeing a game at Candlestick when he was in his late 30s where he whacked HRs from both sides of the plate, for about the 5th time in his career.

My dad said Eddie Murray hit some homers in Old Comiskey that haven't landed yet...
