    david ortiz

    i am not a red sox fan by any measure...although i do enjoy them beating up on the yankees...BUT...has there ever been a more clutch player??? I mean everytime i turn around this guy is winning a game....that game where farnsworth struck him out with the bases loaded must have been the only one where he doesnt get the big hit....the twins must be kicking themselfs. David Wright is the only guy that comes to mind THIS year.

    the part in bold..as usual..gotta stick that in..

    anybody who knows anything knows ortiz owns gordon..

    and he owns the yankees..

    other than that I dont know if he is even batting .300..

    thurman munson was more clutch than him..in more ways..but I guess you never seen him play

    ok well yankees aside no matter what he is hitting for the season.....his ability to get the big hit is amazing.

    had a walkoff HR today, and a walkoff GS a week or so ago.

    he is unbelievable against the yankees with runners in scoring position..

    unbelievable..the yankees hardly ever get him out in important situations..I agree..no matter where the pitch is too..

    I'm pretty sure he didn't have a walkoff grand slam. He had a grand slam against the Nats I believe last week, but that was in the 2nd inning. And against the Rangers he had a walkoff three run homer. I'm a Sawx fan. Can you guess?

    Just letting everyone know:

    David Ortiz (this year):

    RISP - 6 HR, 42 RBI, .279 avg, .393 OBP
    RISP w/ 2 out - 4 HR, 22 RBI, .316 avg, .409 OBP
    Bases Loaded - 1 HR, 12 RBI, .375 avg, .400 OBP

    Alex Rodriguez (this year):
    RISP - 6 HR, 39 RBI, .313 avg, .458 OBP
    RISP w/ 2 out - 3 HR, 16 RBI, .351 avg, .529 OBP
    Bases Loaded - 1 HR, 11 RBI, .429 avg, .500 OBP

    Derek Jeter (this year):
    RISP - 2 HR, 37 RBI, .379 avg, .494 OBP
    RISP w/ 2 out - 1 HR, 15 RBI, .414 avg, .528 OBP
    Bases Loaded - 0 HR, 7 RBI, .400 avg, .625 OBP


    It's really just a perception that people have that Ortiz is such an incredible clutch hitter.

    Compare his numbers in those situations to two great Yankee hitters - one who is viewed as a great clutch hitter and one who is viewed as a terrible clutch hitter.

    All very similar..shhh, but I think A-Rod has Ortiz topped! (and Jeter tops them both)

    Can't get RISP vs. the Yanks, but against the Yanks in general he has 3 HR, 11 RBI, .310 average

    David Ortiz last year vs. the Yankees:
    5 HR, 19 RBI, .296 avg. (good, not great)

    David Ortiz last year vs. the Toronto Blue Jays:
    7 HR, 24 RBI, .373 avg.

    Like I said before, it is all just a perception that David Ortiz is such an incredible clutch hitter and it is the same in regards to how well he plays against the Yankees.

    If you've ever been to ANY Red Sox game at Fenway Park, then you know the level of excitement that Ortiz brings to the stadium when he comes to the plate. It seems like there is a 50/50 shot that he's gonna hit one out! Just that feeling is what we Sox fans know and love about him!

    Got something that actually shows stats after the 7th inning because homers in the first couple of innings isn't clutch.

    Very true. And BravesQB, how's your buddy A-Rod do in the playoffs?

    Ortiz is an awesome ball player. It seems like everytime I see him play, he hits a meaningful homerun, unlike ARod who always seems to hit one when the game is meaningless. The Twins gotta be sick for letting him go.

    You are a complete A$$. I watched Thurman play - terrific, fiery catcher. But as clutch as Papi? Come on, man, take a pill.

    And yes, Papi stinks now because he's not hitting .300 due to the shift. Fair enough. Meanwhile, he's got 20+ HR's and is on track for 120+ RBI. Fool.

    It WOULD be nice...

    ..if a team were to pitch Big Popi inside.

    Francesa is right about teams' reluctance to do this..

    He leans over the plate like he owns it.

    Where's Bob Gibson when you need him?
