A-Rod has 9 walk off HRs in the regular season. But he has approaching 18 times as many Plate appearances there compared to the post season. Therefor, if he had the same rate of walk offs in October, you would not expect him to have hit one yet.

Also, even accounting for him not doing as well the last couple of years, his OPS + in the post season is close to what it is in the regular season. And due to top pitchers being used more often, not the worst starters, the average guy hits WORSE in the post season. Even Mantle did worse, & he is one of the very few players who statistically seemed to do better in regular season "clutch" situations.

Here's something interesting I discovered regarding Mike Schmidt's walk-off homers: In each of his first three full seasons in the majors, 1973-1975, his first home run that year was a walk-off and was also his only walk-off each year. (His first homer of 1973 was his second career home run.) Hitting a walk-off for his first home run of the season did not happen again in his career, although in 1982, his second of the year ended the game.

When it's easy. Another check in the "He's a choke artist" column.

And the second of those was the first of two on consecutive days - there've been 14 in 46 years so to get two on consecutive days seems pretty unlikely!

Is Kendry Morales the only guy to ever hit a walk off grand slam and have to be carried off on a stretcher??

Too bad it wasn't still Seaver vs. Gibson in the thirteenth.
