Last week Andy wrote about Marco Scutaro's large number of walk-off plate appearances.:
"Can you believe that Scutaro has already been responsible for NINE walk-off wins? That’s more than most players get in their entire careers, much less below-average middle infielders."
Andy is an expert when it comes to walk-offs. He has written about them extensively and has a good feel for when something unusual happens. I however, am a novice and felt compelled to run the numbers.
Scutaro began playing full time in 2004. That same season he collected had first walk-off win. As Andy mentioned Scutaro has amassed 9 walk-off wins playing either 2nd base or shortstop. Here are the leaders since 2004 in walk-off wins among middle infielders (through Friday's games).
As you can see, the numbers confirm Andy's statement. When it comes to walking away with a win, there is no one up the middle who has done it better than Marco.
