The Marlins are "clutch"


Recommended Posts

Only it happens so often we don't recognize it.



Check the chart under the title 'Lloyd McClendon's team has hit well with RISP'


The Marlins are the second best team in the NL in opportunities with runners in scoring position, and 3rd best when it comes to executing and getting a base hit in the situation.

I guess we just don't hit homeruns with runners in scoring position as often as we should to drive in more runs. The close and late situation isn't good for the team - but you would need less clutch hits late if the Marlins had power and could put teams away early. Sounds to me like our offensive ineptitude boils down to this: Mikey Lowell and Alex not hitting home runs and Juan Pierre not getting on base as often as a leadoff hitter for a good team shoud. Perhaps having Hermida and Conine in the lineup instead of Lowell increases our power somewhat.
