Hypotetical: Its the bottom of the ninth, two outs and the tying runner is on second. Which Sox hitter do you want at the plate?

Tad or Aaron

Just strictly going by the numbers, I believe ARow has the highest BA with RISP AND 2 outs on our team, so I would go with him...

Aaron or Timo, most likely Timo

You're all going to think that I am crazy, but this is who I would want:

ARow or Tad, I agree.

I didn't forget about you, Frank.

Timo Perez.

While his stats are a bit lagging this year, from 2002-2004 Timo batted an impressive .323 with RISP and two outs.

Though I guess you could use stats/splits to make anyone seem impressive.

Timo is Mr.Clutch. That is the only reason he is still on this team.

If he's 100% healthy, Frank. If not, Carl!

AJ.

I still have visions of AJ versus Koch in the ALDS a few years back.

I would never pick anyone over Iguchi in that situation.

(Since Valentin and Ventura aren't on the team anymore)

Aaron, with Timo 2nd.

Aaron Rowand or Jermaine Dye or Big Frank or Willie Harris.

I'm kinda surprised at the variety of answers, but then again, I shouldn't be. The Sox are that kind of a team.

I'd go with Gooch though, he's more reliable than not.

Wanna know something funny? With every other team you could easily locate 2 or 3 of the main clutch hitters on the team. This Sox team, they're clutch 1-9, and then some.


White Sox Baseball...gotta love it!

The only reason I would stay away from Iguchi is because come that moment where a clutch hit is needed from him, Ozzie would have replaced him in the line-up w/ Harris "to give him time off."

Agree Aaron or Tad. NOT Crazy Carl. He has some good hits this year, and a strong RBI count, but watching him last night in the 3rd made me puke.

I want Mags back
07-24-2005, 08:22 PM
Joe Crede

Yeah it seems as if he only hits the ball in Clutch Situations, along with Timo, like on Memorial Day. Id go with Crede or Tadahito.

Ironic how the least clutch hitter on the team is batting 4th...

Aaron, Tad or Timo (as long as he is off the bench).

Crede, AJ, and Uribe all get honorable mentions.

In fact the only guy I really cannot count on is Crazy Carl, or Konerko. I don't know, but they are big rbi guys in non-clutch situations.

Kelly Dransfeldt

in all seriousness... I'd go with Crede. When its on the line, that guy battles. If its Crede then that means that Aaron and Tad are already on base. :D:

Jumping off the deep end considering this last series, I no longer would want A-row in that situation... He GIDP a bunch this series it seemed to me... that one on saturday in the 9th ripped out my heart.

Ok, Kidding.


I'd go with tad or row(despite saturday night *grumble*), big frank, then crede. Sue me, but i have this feeling if the sox get deep into the playoffs or *gasp* into the WS, crede may be close to our mvp (besides pitching obviously).

You have to go with Carl.

In this order for me...

1. Krazy Carl
2. Crede
3. Gooch
4. Rowand
5. Timo

?????? Carl is hitting .340 with RISP and two outs.

Obviously, a question like this all depends on who is pitching for the opposition, but in general, my top choices would be:

1. A-Row
2. Hot Carl
3. Timo

Who says Dransfeldt isnt clutch is an idiot. http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/multimedia/tp_archive.jsp?c_id=cws&ym=200404

One of my favorite plays of the year that year, hands down

1. Everett

2. Dye

3. Iguchi

4. Rowand

And we all know the best clutch hitter in that dugout is Baines - one of the best clutch hitters in baseball history.

Of the active-status players, Carl is probably my choice, but I love seeing Timo come up late in close games. Ever since that AB in July '04 vs. Francisco Rodriguez . . .

Overall, I'd go with Tadahito. He's come through time and time again this year, he's money.

I'd also take Aaron. He's got the stones to get a big hit.

If it's a flame thrower I'd take Konerko even. The harder you throw it, the more he likes it. The thing with him it seems is if it's the sixth inning, he's probably gonna pop up a 3-1 pitch, but when the chips are really down, he's usually pretty clutch.

I doubt many of the people on these boards understand what this is, but I do, and I'm laughing quite heartily right now.
