    I've always viewed clutch as someone doing much better than they normally do when it counts. It's hard to use stats to measure this. Not all late and close games are the same. Not all playoff PAs are the same "clutchness".

    Bottom line regardless of who the Sox get in the position players...pitching will tell the story next year just like it does every year.  Beckett and Lester have got to be better than good all year.  If the Sox are stuck with Lackey, perhaps a manager who doesn't let him give up 6 or 7 runs a game will help somewhat - that said - he is still a .500 pitcher with durability and that is not a terrible thing unless one dwells on his contract.  They MUST get 2 starters that are consistent and will put up 10-12 victories and give the Sox 160-180 innings without trips to the DL.  Obviously these must come from the FA list ala the Yanks with Garcia and Colon.  I can't see them going after a top pitching prospect who will command a long term contract.  Without the pitching - both BP and starting...they will not compete well in the AL East.
