It's a really big step from "that was a really clutch at bat" to "that guy is clutch" (and therefore more likely than others to perform well in other clutch situations).
I dunno I feel "I am clutch"! I have always performed whatever job I have done best when the pressure was on. I have always worked hard but when needed I have felt that I was able to really focus in on what I needed to do and take it to another level if you will. A level in which it would take too much energy to do it at constantly. That might seem laughable to some who don't feel the same but to those who have done the same, know what I mean. And I haven't always been the best at what I did but when the heat was on I rose to the occassion and the best didn't always do the same. It comes from an extreme competitive desire to tap into something that is a bit unknown.
And that's why I believe it exists in baseball as well.
