David Ortiz In Walkoff Situations II

All 2007 stats included.

This is an update to an August 1, 2006 post.

When I wrote that original post, Ortiz's performance in potential game-winning situations at Fenway Park was nearly super-human. I discovered that:
Since the end of the 2004 regular season [to August 1, 2006], Ortiz has come to the plate in a walk-off situations 19 times -- and reached base 16 times. He is 11-for-14 (.786), with 7 HR and 20 RBI.

In 2005 and 2006, he is 8-for-9, with 5 HR and 15 RBI!
Since then, Flo has cooled down somewhat.

He walked and grounded out in two chances in late 2006. He has had four chances for a walk-off hit this season and has been successful once -- last night against Tampa Bay.
2003:    2-for-5, HR, 2 RBI, BB
2004: 2-for-8, HR, 3 RBI
2004 PS: 3-for-5, 2 HR, 5 RBI, BB
2005: 3-for-3, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB
2006: 5-for-7, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 3 BB
2007: 1-for-4, HR, 2 RBI, BB
Total: 16-for-32, 10 HR, 27 RBI, 8 BB

the thing about David Ortiz is that when he comes up in a clutch spot even if he is in a wicked bad slump he he kill you. The pitcher might be the 2nd best closer in baseball (he couldn't be the first because Papelbon is) but Ortiz will just come through. I went one of the games where he jacked a walk-off and we all went crazy! So whether David Ortiz is Hot or not he will kill you in the clutch.
