LADY AT THE BAT: Baby Clutch Strikes Again

Baby Clutch Strikes Again

Derek Jeter is known as Mr Clutch. Call Melky Cabrera Baby Clutch.

Baby Clutch came through yesterday, once again, with a tie-breaking, go-ahead, two-run homer in the 8th inning, leading to the Yankees 8-6 victory over the Rangers. He's been the team's most consistent clutch hitter all season. What a difference a year makes. Last year he was all but forgotten, relegated to punching bag status on message boards all over cyberspace. Now, a complete turnaround.

Melky Cabrera is on the ballot for the Pepsi Clutch Performer Award. I think he deserves some votes. Don't you?

Back later with "Casual Friday."
