Stop Saying David Wright Isn’t ClutchJune 26, 2010
During Thursday night’s 6-5 loss to the Tigers David Wright struck-out with the bases loaded in the 7th inning. That proved to be a pivotal point in the game. After that, my Twitter feed became full with the “David Wright is not clutch” statement. I am one who tends to disagree with this logic of thinking. I’m not saying that he’s the most “clutch” player in baseball but to say that he isn’t “clutch” at all is simply not true. There have been times when he’s come through in key moments and there are times when he hasn’t but I think the positive outweighs the negative in this situation.
Below are a few stats which show that for the most part David Wright has shown to be a “clutch” player.
