It has becoming increasingly clear to me throughout the past two seasons that Aramis has quietly (though maybe not to us Cubs fans) become one of the best clutch hitters in the game. Today's home run was just another great example. Over the past two years I remember the homer against the Brewers, a two-run triple against the Reds that tied the game in the ninth inning, his late homer against the Pirates this year that gave us the lead (which we blew), the same against the Rockies, and the two-run double in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
I'm sure there are other examples, but my question is this. How many other hitters in the game today would you rather have up in a clutch situation? Maybe Pujols, but I can't think of any others. Is Aramis Ramirez the best clutch hitter around, I certainly think he is top-5, maybe top-3.
