Let's compare "choker" Alex Rodriguez to "clutch" Derek Jeter.

 

2003-2005 Regular Season "Close and Late" situations

 

ESPN.com defines "Close and Late" as when the game is in the 7th inning or later and the batting team is leading by one run, tied, or has the potential tying run on base, at bat, or on deck.

 

Arod: .276 BA / .392 OBP / .553 SLG / .945 OPS

Jeter: .249 BA / .352 OBP / .392 SLG / .744 OPS

 

Huge advantage to Arod.

 

 

Now, let's examine their postseason careers:

 

Arod: .305 BA / .393 OBP / .534 SLG / .927 OPS

Jeter: .307 BA / .379 OBP / .463 SLG / .842 OPS

 

Advantage Arod.

 

 

Please stop with the nonsense.

Now lets see clutch situation numbers...

:confused::confused:

 

Close and Late is the very definition of clutch stats and A-Rod since 2003 has been better in close and late games than Derek Jeter. The stats dont lie.

Sorry, I just read the stats.... :doh: Keep in mind also, Jeter was out for awhile in 2003.

Where did these numbers come from. The only playoff stats I could come up with are from 2005 when Alex's only good stat was his OPB.

From ESPN.com three year splits under stats. This was done a while ago so the stats may have changed a little but A-Rod has such a big statistical lead on Jeter its doubtful anything that big changed.
