Not really a good one though. Summary: I believe that bad managing and epic choking, rather than statistics, are to blame for epically bad managing and choking, so I must read O'Shaughnessy and call into EEI.
I know you are baiting here but...
You claim A-Gon underperformed when he hit .318 with a .977 Ops, 4 HR and 17 RBI in September. Projecting that out to 162 games, that's 25 HR and 106 RBI. In reality, he hit .338 with a .958 OPS, 27 HR and 117 RBI for the year. Please, please explain to me why that is well below his performance levels.
With regards to the clutch hits point, imperfect data and all, but he hit .337 with a .924 OPS, 4 HR and 83 RBI with RISP and .303 with an .861 OPS, 2 HR and 29 RBI in 66 AB with RSIP and 2-outs. He's also at his best when in a one-run game. Go figure. Trying to find inning-by-inning splits but, yeah, you're wrong.
And I've read that sentence about 10 times and I still have no idea what it means. You presented an argument based of feeling. I called it out based on what actually happened. You wrote an incoherent sentence about...something.
Edit: Hooray! Found more split numbers and they all confirm basically the same thing I was pointing out above. Sorry I couldn't watch every game. When that happens you have to rely on what you have on hand. What we have on hand is a bunch of info that says Adrian Gonzalez is a pretty consistent hitter in nearly every situation. In case you want to look, here ya go: http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=gonzaad01&year=&t=b#clutc
Jeez, elvii, I'm surprised you're able to keep up these stat projections between all the japanese zimas.
The radiation keeps me alert.
