Greg Vaughn???

Good call. Seventeen home runs in September 1999 cinches that.

Eddie Taubansee was pretty clutch that year too. It's a bit ironic that fans will be chanting "Ed-die!" in September again...

I thought of both Barry and Tony, but I was trying to think of someone who seeemed to be clutch more recently, Barry my all time favorite, got almost every hit he needed to in the 1995 season, along with Ron Gant and Reggie Sanders. You just cant throw Sanders name because of his performance against the great Braves pitching staff in the playoffs. I would like to give an honorable mention Mr. Clutch award to Billy Hatcher. His collective work of the 90 series is about as clutch as they come.

Juan Castro.

;)

While it may be a little too early to start comparing EE with Doggie the HoFer, I've had the same thought myself several times. Lets' hope he stays on course!

... any Reds player I have ever seen.

I am only 20 years old, so I haven't observed a lot of Red's players. However, I love EE. I actually expect him to pull through every time he comes up with RISP or in critical AB. I am shocked and disappointed when he doesn't. It has been a long time since Red's fans felt that way about one of their players.

I agree. I'm 24, but I don't remember any Red who seems to deliver with such regularity. When Dunn & Junior are up, I'm hoping for a hit, but not expecting one. When EE is up and men are in scoring position, I find myself expecting him to come though.

I think Mr. Clutch this year is definitley Aurilia. EE is not far behind along with David Ross. The exciting thing about this team is that it seems to be a different player every time getting the clutch hit.

Recently, It'd have to be Larkin or Greg Vaughn.

going back a little bit, there were guys on the '90 team who could stake a claim. Eric Davis, Billy Hatcher, the Dibble/Charlton/Myers triumverate or Chris Sabo.

And of course, Jose Rijo is in a class by himself.

I'll let some of the other folks go farther back to the Machine & prior.

. . . a healthy, younger Griffey.

EE now has the same number of RBIs as Griffey in about 100 fewer AB's. That's much less an indictment of Griffey than praise for EE since Griffey is on a decent pace this year in light of his early injury.

Vaughn's second half of 1999 was a thing of true beauty. I remember his 3 HR day vs. the Cubbies.

I've been thinking the same thing. Although I admit it's too early in his career for that type of comparison.

One of those and absolute BOMB off of Farnsworth.

Exact same thought I had! BL was always clutch. EE does remind somewhat of Doggie also just in that he has a seemingly built in/born with idea of how to drive in runs w/o necc. hitting it out of the park. EE is going to be a very good player assuming he continues to work hard after he gets big $$$ and some big time recognition.
