Why is Konerko's name not on that list?

I'm curious to see what the stat geeks dig up on this one.

I said Ventura, but that may just be because he was my favorite player.

Robin Ventura got a lot of big hits for the Sox.Does anyone
remember his 1991 game ending granny against the Rangers??
4 years later,he hit 2 grannys in the same game at Texas.
I can't say whether Crede is more clutch or not.
I voted "uncertain".

What we're dealing with are two different types of clutch players. While Ventura came up clutch in the early innings, Crede comes up clutch in the late innings. I'd say Crede's "clutchness" is more meaningful as a result, so I voted for Crede in this poll.

Not sure if it was the same game, but one game I'll never forget was on or around my birthday (July 31) when I was younger, definitely could've been '91. Anyway my family wanted to leave and beat traffic, so we took off. As we got on the Ryan, we heard the corwd go nuts, turned on the radio and heard Ventura hit a game-winning grand-slam. I was so pissed it wasn't even funny.

Needless to say, I have never and will never leave any game early for any reason.

And I voted for Ventura. I value longevity.

Then again, I'm probably biased. :tongue:

I voted for Ventura just because I remember being at quite a few game where Robin hit the walk-off (remember Frank picking him up over his shoulder?) and many other hits to win the game. Don't get me wrong, Joe Crede is clutch, but if I were playing some weird game where I could chose between Ventura at his peak and Crede right now in game 7 of the WS with 2 outs...I want Ventura. But it's a moot point, we got Crede. :wink:

Yikes...I think I just rationalized like Ed Farmer. *shivers*

Ventura was awesome but CREDE is now so he is more clutch for us now, which is ALL you should care about now. not the past; what Ventura did in 1991 does not affect the ALCS. i loved Ventura when he was here but he isn't so CREDE is more clutch

Did you "talk to someone before the game" to come up with that thought? LOL.

I see a little Ventura in Crede. He's gonna be okay, I like him.

Voted uncertain though. I think AJ came up big a few times this year.

Crede's doing great right now, but pretty much the only categories he beats Ventura in are hair length and batting-right-handedness.
:cool:
