Ellsberg figure this year :
None on: .258/.290/.374
Bases loaded: .000/.333/.000
Risp/2 outs: .214/.267/.286
He's almost anti-clutch this year if you believe in those things...
As for great when needs to be, he needed to be last night... ;)
I love real numbers... :cool:
And when the Sox are ahead, he bats .363/.367/.431
Not only is he anti-clutch this year, he's a stat padder! Ha!
