Hitting with RISP

New, comments

Remember all the stories early in the season, all the comments about how the Rangers weren't clutch, can't get timely hits, etc. etc. etc.?

The Rangers currently have the highest OPS in the A.L. with runners in scoring position.

Not surprisingly, they are second in the A.L. in overall OPS (one point behind Boston).

As one would expect, their performance with RISP has evened out and is around where it is overall.

CORRECTION -- I was looking at the data for runners on base, not RISP.  With RISP, they have the third highest team OPS (although it is still slightly higher than their overall OPS).
