Interesting Arod Notes

Due to Mr. Ed's comments on the below post about the End of an ERA (specifically referring to Arod), The People's Champ dug deep into his statistical compilations and came up with the following info:



As you can see, this year has been a horrible year for Arod. The numbers across the board gho down as the situation becomes "more clutch" (in fact he's hitting only .100 with bases loaded this season). However, over the course of his Yankee career, Arod has at worst, just as good in the clutch as he has in regular situations (which is pretty darn good considering his superman like statistics). Generally,I would say the issue is more perception than fact. At least that's what the numbers say.
risp- Batting Average with runners in scoring position
risp with 2 outs- Batting Average with Runners in scoring position with 2 outs
risp slg- Slugging Percentage with runners in scoring position.
avg- Season batting average
slg- Season Slugging percentage

Well, Arod is definitely not helping his cause by today's performance. With that being said, for all of his faults, I am very happy he's on my squad. Hey, it's not my cash and it's not easy to replace .300 40+HR and 120+ RBI's a year.
