For saying things like this:
Even though they had an exceptional defensive catcher in Ryan Hanigan, the budget-conscious Reds still allocated $3 million to bring back veteran Ramon Hernandez in November.

“You’ve got to admit, Ramon has historically been one of the best clutch RBI guys for the minimum amount of home runs the guy has hit,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Sunday.
Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in low leverage situations – .325
Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in medium leverage situations – .331
Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in high leverage situations – .330
Ramon Hernandez = Clutch.
