    Re: Sample Size

    Evidently, sample size depends on who you're talking about. If you bring up the fact that Votto is 1 for 8 with the bases loaded this year, people will be super-quick to point out that the sample size is waaaaay too small.

    But if you talk about Allen Craig being 7 for 10 with the bases loaded, you will hear about what an outstanding clutch hitter he is.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I don't know who this "people" is but if you find the person who has these seemingly diametrically opposing opinions, please give them a good dressing-down from me.

    In case "people" is reading, both sample sizes are meaningless for anything other than the history books.
