    The problem with looking at such stats is that they represent average or total performance over seven years - often colored by early years' performance.  I wonder what the picture would look like if you analyzed the trends over the last 3 years, which may better represent the current capability.

    I hope Ferrall does not see this because I want him to have Iggy continue playing.   LOL

    Re: An Interesting Stat....

    Thanks, Moonslav!  Interesting that Napoli is at #219, based upon last three years' data.  On his way down!  Also, Ells at #8 is probably because of his 2011 year.

    Some of RS castoffs, e.g., AGon, Youk and Overbay rank fairly high while others, e.g., Beltre and Reddick appear to be "stat-padders"!

    Seemed like Papi was more clutch than that, but maybe that was prior 2006?  Not surprised by Martin's standing, surprised Yanks let him walk though.

    at that price. for a sub-par catcher, they were smart to let him walk. I'm sure they would have like to see him back (considering their alternatives at catcher) but no way they match what the bucks offered.

    That's one example of what I meant when I said, it is very rare that a player can sustain "clutch" over a long period of time.
