Jeff Mathis, Clutch God

I wrote about this earlier in the year, but no one should be surprised that Jeff Mathis delivered the Angels’ big hit last night. This year, he batted .344 in 46 High Leverage plate appearances vs. .144 in 119 Low Leverage plate appearances. That’s a difference of 200 points.

Think that’s just a fluke? Well, yeah, you’re right. He batted only .125 in High Leverage plate appearances last year. It’s just one of those oddities that makes baseball so much fun.
