    More Papi Data........Vote for Papi

    Ortiz has hit three game-deciding home runs in the last nine days -- Sept. 6 vs. Los Angeles in the bottom of the ninth, Monday night vs. Toronto in the 11th, and last night in the eighth. All three came with the game tied. He homered four times in this three-game series and has homered 16 times in his last 30 games.

    Of his 42 home runs -- a career high -- 18 have tied games or put the Sox ahead, nine of those in the seventh inning or later.

    He has 18 game-winning RBIs. In the seventh inning and beyond, he's hit 17 home runs and knocked in 45 runs. Of his major-league leading 130 RBIs, 41 have tied games or put the Sox ahead.

    In clutch situations (seventh inning on, one run ahead to two runs behind or representing at least the tying run), he's hitting .329 with 9 home runs and 26 RBIs.

    David Ortiz's 42d homer established a career high, eclipsing his 2004 total by one. It was also his 38th homer this year hit out of the DH position, surpassing Edgar Martinez's single-season record of 37 in 2000 with Seattle

    With 42 home runs (including 16 in his last 30 games), David Ortiz has established a new career high and is the first player in Red Sox history to hit more than 40 homers in backto-back seasons…Carl Yastrzemski is the only other player in club history to post back-to-back 40 homer campaigns (Yaz hit
    exactly 40 homers in both 1969 and 1970).

    With 83 homers since the start of last season, David Ortiz is 4 homers shy of setting the club record for home runs in consecutive campaigns…Jimmie Foxx owns the mark after slugging 36 homers in 1937 and a club-record 50 in 1938.

    Including his game-winning, 2-run home run last night in the 8th inning in Toronto, Ortiz leads the A.L. with 9 homers in “close
    and late” situations…Atlanta’s Andruw Jones tops the majors with 10 such blasts…no other American Leaguer has more than 6.

    Fuh true.....and he's picking it up lately....while he's still hitting .282 with 35 HRs for the season, he's batting .306 (38-for-124) with 10 doubles, 5 homers, 23 RBI and 28 runs in his last 32 games

    Papi in the clutch

    From the Boston Globe....

    http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal...relate/?page=2

    Clutch hitting? Stats Inc. has come up with a measurement. Counting situations in which the hitter is batting in the seventh inning or later, with his team ahead by a run, tied, or with the tying run on base, at bat, or on deck (quite a mouthful and bless the man who compiles this stuff), Ortiz leads the American League with 9 homers, 28 RBIs, and a .786 slugging percentage.

    A few final numbers on David Ortiz

    The 29-year-old designated hitter hit .410 with two or more runners on base.

    He had 21 game-winning RBIs, eight from the seventh inning on. Nineteen of his 47 home runs and 50 of his 148 RBIs came from the seventh inning on.

    He homered 26 times from the sixth inning on, eight times from the ninth inning on.

    He recorded 74 RBIs at Fenway Park and 74 RBIs on the road. Other than Ramirez (144) and Damon (75), no other Red Sox player knocked in 74 runs total.

    He hit .407 against lefthanded pitchers with runners in scoring position. Hit .368 with two outs and runners in scoring position.

    He reached by hit, walk, or hit by pitch in 144 of his 158 games. He reached base three times or more in 81 games.

    When the Red Sox trailed by 1 to 3 runs and runners were in scoring position, he hit .517 (15 for 29).

    Sounds like an MVP to me.....
