    A-Rod's Not The Yankees' Only Playoff Goat

    I've always resisted the idea that clutch hitting exists, I guess because I don't like the notion that baseball is something more than a game - that it brings out something heroic in an athlete.

Bobby Thomson's, after all, won a pennant; Bill Mazeroski's won a World Series. But I don't think any pair of home runs turned so many careers o ... More >>
