I was wondering the same thing... how can the leverage index be anything but high in these scenarios?

Jeter barely, barely falls below the threshold. High leverage is 1.5 and Jeter's situation scored 1.49. The only other game ending RBI left out was Billy Martin getting thrown out at home plate in a 7-2 game. It seems to me using the leverage index in this case was a bit redundant.

Perhaps the leverage index check eliminated it? You'd think a tie game in extra innings would always be high leverage.

How do you check the LI for individual plate appearances? I see the aLI for each player but I don't see each PA's LI in the game log.

But perhaps less World Series-Winning Probability Added than Lavagetto or Gibson? Hard to say.
