By Fangraphs reckoning, he's the most "clutch" player so far this year and it's really not close.

They define clutch by comparing how a player normally performs vs. how he performs in high leverage situations.  It is a past looking stat and is not predictive.  The way it works, if you are a guy who normally is a .240 hitter with weak power but hit .300 with above-average power in high leverage situations, you will likely do better on it than a guy who normally is a .320 hitter with very good power who hits .330 with very good power in clutch situations.  Thus, Harper is more "clutch" than Trout, but Trout has probably performed better in clutch situations.

I said before he has been Babe Ruth with runners on base. And Chris Davis with the bases empty.

If JP Realmuto hit that grand slam last night, would be 1/2 as big of a story as it has become?  Granted, it was massive hit, and Bryce turned it into great theater, but Jesus H folks, let's get a grip.   (directed at the national media)

It's early.
12 plus years to go. Eventually they will trade him to the Yankees or Dodgers. Or a new Vegas team.

Agreed, I wasn't knocking him just found his tearing around the bases a funny visual.

He’s the bat whisperer.

From what I have read Mallee overloaded the players with data. And wanted them to take pitches. If Charlie is giving them data he probably doesn’t look at it himself.

Harper is a streaky hitter. This is not news.

He is only batting .254/.374/.496

We have four players in the top twenty in the NL lead by number 4 Anthony with Turner ,Soto and Eaton following.

Largely due to his clutchness this season, Harper is amongst baseball's leaders in Win Probability Added

Excited for it to leak that hours before the NL Wild Card game Mark Lerner handed Anthony a handwritten $8/170m offer on a wetwipe in the hallway outside the clubhouse.
