Pie = Mr Clutch

Well, Felix Pie won another game with a walkoff homerun for the Iowa Cubs last night.  It was Pie's second HR of the game:

Pie has hit a few walkoff homeruns in the past two year, and with the recent splits database of minor leaguers, I found it interesting to see Pie's splits.

Notice Pie's OPS without men on base and with men on base:

Without:  .615
With:    1.128

Further with runners in scoring position his OPS goes to 1.286.

John Sickels recently had an article comparing Pie to another prospect in the A's system and mentioned focus being an issue with Pie, saying:


He has already developed a reputation for playing well in the clutch, although he's also shown some tendency to coast in non-clutch situations, relying a bit too much on his natural talent. This is a normal thing for players his age and is not expected to be a long-term issue

Just thought others might find this interesting.
