Well doesn't Billy Wagner affect his own clutch situation? I mean, the entirety of the situation, batter and pitcher, must be taken in to account. Billy Wagner giving up the winning run over Majewski would signifiy an increase in choke, even more so given a poor batter like Corey Patterson. I don't think you can look at a batter's situation in a vaccuum from the pitchers situation, they're the same situation!
