On Clutchiness

November 11, 2009

Every couple months, Sean (oldest friend, die-hard Yanks fan) and I argue about Derek Jeter.  I am informed by baseballprospectus.com and other baseball analysts. He watches more games than I do and has played team sports his whole life. Needless to say, we have different views on topics like clubhouse chemistry and clutch hitting. Along those lines, Alex Belth recently wrote:

A-Rod during regular season: .305/.390/.576
A-Rod during playoffs: .302/.409/.568

Same thing. Same player. Same guy.

(quoted from this Posnanski post)

I’d add:

Jeter during regular season: .317      .388      .459
Jeter during playoffs: .313      .383      .479

I’m gonna miss the old girl…
