    Do Agon's late inning numbers remind anyone of Jim Double-play Rice? 

    Great in garbage time. 

    Useless late in meaningful games.

    But good enough to get in HOF (not on my card).

    Re: AGon's numbers

    Amazing about the complaints AGon doesn't hit in the clutch, as if runs scored early don't count. 

    So maybe you should naysayers should consider this.  Look at it from the pitching side.  If you honestly don't think early runs are important, you must love it when our pitchers give up bunches early on, almost as if those runs don't count. 

    The reality is that all runs, early or late, count, and every team, without exception, takes them when they can get them.  And very often early runs set the tone for the entire game--get ahead, stay ahead; get behind, stay behind. 

    In the recent 3 game series against the Yankees, it was the early 2 run dinger by AGon that basically won game 2--get ahead, stay ahead.  His late dinger in game three should have ignited a Sox rally, but it didn't, so it was the only run.

    his last at bat reads as a K, but he had a tremendous at bat--foul HR and a line shot down the line, probably missed the white chalk by 2 inches. The guy is getting great at bats, he has 40 RBI since All-Star Break. He's awesome on a team of underachievers and minor leaguers.

    Yeah, like you never cherry picked stats. He doesn't hit in the 9th inning for his career, or extra inning. He hasn't this year, either. Prove me wrong.

    You went to baseball reference to find these splits, and you took Gonzalez's .259 average to support the idea that he doesn't hit well in extra innings.  Sitting right next to that .259 was a .422 OBP that would indicate to anybody over the age of four with a functional brain that nobody is stupid enough to pitch to Gonzalez in extra innings.  The man has been walked intentionally once every 8.5 PAs in extra innings.

    I'm late to this, but I'll just repeat what I said on another thread: I wish this team had four more Adrian Gonzalezes.

    Well, I guess that leaves out Ted Williams who had like 5 singles in the 1946 World Series.  Talk about a guy who couldn't hit when it really, really, really counted--his one and only shot at a WS ring.

    Which is nonsense, of course.  He remains a candidate for best hitter ever. 

    As for AGon, I think it's way too early to put him in the HOF. All I'm saying is he has carried a heckuva load in August because the rest of the lineup mostly stinks. I well remember all of Ortiz's complaints when Manny left, how he would no longer get a "pitch to hit." AGon doesn't gripe, he just hits the pitches he does get. 

    An rbi is still an rbi is still an rbi.  Right now opposing teams would be nuts to give him a pitch to hit with the game on the line, so we should be happy to see him swinging at pitches in the early innings.

    In Response to Re: AGon's numbers : Out of his 210 career homers 2 were walk off, 22 were tying, 80 were go ahead.   Out of Evans 385 4 were walk off 46 tying, 128 were go ahead. Tony C hit 166. 1 was walk off 18 was tying, 58 was go ahead. Ramirez had 555 3 were walk off 51 were tying, 175 were go ahead. So doing some simple math Agon has a higher percentage of walk off, tying and go ahead then Manny and Tony C and is about the same as Dewey.  All stats are from Baseball Reference.com Obviously Papi is a beast in walk offs.  he wins.   Glad we cleared that up.

    Agree with max's point - an RBI is an RBI.  Early RBI's that give you the lead are a key to winning games.
     
    Agree with slomag's point - look at his late inning walks - he's not being pitched to in those big RBI situations.

    Agree with all the AGon supporters here.

    He is doing it without any of the mutual protection from Big Papi in the line-up at the same time.

    I can't believe you're still capping on Johnny Pesky softlaw. The guy's dead, you really need to lay off him.

    At some point, you'll develop a conscience and stop all this foolishness.

    Check that ... you're a lawyer.   You'll never change for the better.

    I heard you need to drop your pants to count to 21! Not that it's any of your business, but I don't know Drewski, except as a poster. I like his posts. Unlike you, he has a brain and contributes actual thoughts to this forum.

    You would have booed Yaz for popping up to Nettles to end plaoff game. You would have booed TSW for not hitting .420. Leave it alone. You post more negative crud than any one else.

    Gonzo, and it is not even close.  Pujols is at least $75M overpaid.

    At least Gonzo didn't get the batting coach fired, but Pujols did with the Angels--Mickey Hatcher. Lot of good that did for the dugout and team morale...

    RISP isn't clutch -- so far, I don't see Gonzo as a clutch hitter.
