Didi hit .300 with a .345 obp after the all star break.This is my beef as well, especially with Arod and Tex, seemed when the team was hitting in a game they also hit big and rack up their #'s but when it's a tight game and you need a clutch hit, they don't come thru for us. McCann and Beltron clutched for us numerous times, yes Arod did have a few games as well but with the names, experience and the money they are paid, I expect more.
You're tight in 2009 and other years we saw playoffs, there was always clutch hits from top of the line up but not now.
Outside of Ellsbury, I also question Gardner, yes he is fast at both base running and fielding but for someone they were going to trade at the start of the season, who was now in the top 3 order, he's not delivered the OBP I expected to see out of him and I'm a fan is his gameplay in general.
Another name, Didi, I still don't know what to make of him, wasn't he the one who left 10 RISP's last week and was 0-5 at bat? I mean he is only 25, had a .265 this year and has potential but there is no consistency there on offense and he's not filling Jeter's shoes on defense either, so is he one of those guys who will get better with experience or is this the best we saw in him?
Arod high leverage situations .289/.398/.588
They showed a stat a couple times this year. I think it was that he has the most game tying and go ahead home runs in late innings then any in yankee history.
Teix I'm not sure about but i think he actually had a good season in "clutch" spots.
If you want to throw up. Check out gardners splits this year and last pre and post all star.
