More Hardball Stats

In response to a RZA comment on the previous entry I have to strenuously disagree that this is a large sample size to make small distinctions. If we split Papi's numbers, for instance by odd innings vs even innings, we get almost as big a difference as the early vs. late split: 0.299 odd vs 0.281 even. I'm not saying Papi isn't clutch, I'm saying that the statistical evidence isn't overwhelming.
