Time to put up or shut up:

I'm looking for the guy that is better than his TEAMMATES with the game on the line, not necessarily better than himself in a non-clutch situation.

So, you think you know who is the clutch hitter on your team? You think you know who you want at bat with the game on the line? Well, let's find out.

Go through your favorite team's roster, and select the one GREAT clutch hitter, the one guy you want at bat, when the game is on the line. One selection will do. If you like, you can go through each player, and note how good or bad a clutch hitter he is.

I will go through the same list of players, and simply select the best hitter on the team, period. We'll come into conflict in a few places, like with the Cardinals (Pujols), and Angels (Vlad). In that case, we'll go to our number 2 guys.

Last chance guys.... just 4 days to go. It's a very close race among your big 4, plus Crede.

Michael Lewis told me that there was no such thing as a clutch hitter in Moneyball.

The sad thing is no matter how much Tango's team wins by, as long as one guy on the fan-picked team gets a big hit at some point, all the usual suspects will start prattling about the game not being played on paper and pencil-****ing and all that jazz.

Well, Encarnacion may have done that already!
