I Love Dusty Baker

February 21, 2010

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.

Defense played secondary into the equation. Hernandez’s bat had everything to do with the re-signing.

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.
