Eric Mack from cbssportsline.com stated that ARod was better in the clutch the Ortiz. He cited ARod’s .300 avg with runners in scoring pos. w/ 2 outs versus ortiz’s .286. What Eric Mack failed to realize was that clutch is more about late innings of close games than RISP. In that category, Ortiz .900 OPS far surpasses ARod’s .600 OPS, and in late inning press with runners on (LIPRO), Ortiz’s OPS more than doubles Arods, and they both have over 20 ABs in that category. Also, Arod has k’d 10 times in 28 AB’s in LIPRO , while ortiz has k’d twice in LIPRO.
