More on being clutch

Posted at 5:25 PM on April 6, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Tom Benjamin has an interesting post about clutch players in hockey. It doesn't have much to do with baseball, but has an interesting thought:

Calling someone a clutch player is really damning him with faint praise. If he can elevate his game at critical moments, why doesn't he keep it elevated all the time? Isn't every save in some sense a key one? Is goofing up when the game is not on the line really any better than blowing it when the chips are down?
