Re: Art of clutch hitting: Or wait, I think that dead horse just moved
If you have sports media covering the event, there has to be a REASON for everything.
The players practiced too much this week and lost - they were on tired legs. They players practiced too lightly this week and lost - they were a bit rusty/not sharp.
I think the problem with clutch is that the media wants you to think the players are "elevating their game" when what they are truely doing is maintaining their games under pressure better than the rest of the players. Thats a kind of clutch I'll believe in.
