    Well 20 times... by 13 players (Klu 53-55) Votto twice, Robby a mess (Hey he's old let's trade him... which was decision made when Deron Johnson drove in 135 runs in 1965 and DeWitt thought he'd pick up the slack (he did not))

    And "superstars" Tom Tresh, Bobby Murcer and Roger Repoz. Boy when that early 60s team crashed in 65 they did it HARD.

    The Reds aren't the oldest franchise, but I like your point.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    So over on Fangraphs there is a stat called "Clutch." I have no idea what it is or how it is computed. Based on the name, I would assume it is supposed to be a measure of how clutch a hitter is. This is the Fangraphs definition :
    Clutch - How much better or worse a player does in high leverage situations than he would have done in a context neutral environment
    http://www.fangraphs.com/library/

    http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.asp...=0&sort=12%2cd

    I put in a minimum of 100 PA to limit the numbers a little bit and there are 136 players that met that criteria in the NL. Of those Joey Votto sits at #127 and Cozart at 135. I have no idea what this means. Is anyone here familiar enough with the stat to provide an explanation?

    Code:

    Now since 2007 there are 509 MLB players with at least 1000 PA and Votto has the 15th highest Clutch number- again whatever that means.
