You say it should be measured, but you don't want to use a number to do it. Maybe you prefer a color or sound... And if you really don't want to measure it, how exactly should we compare players on their clutchiness?
Why does it have to be quantified?
Watching baseball tells me that Papi tends to come up big more often in clutch situations than Adam Dunn. I don't need a stat to tell me that.
I didn't say it should be measured and that's it. I said it should be measured on coming through in pressure situations. If someone wants to quantify that statement, then have fun trying to do it.
But I already know how to measure it. It can be measured by watching the games and seeing when that person performs well in those situations.
