When you see his average with men on and when there aren’t men on, it’s a mentality that you can’t teach. He’s had it. He’s always had it.

So he's slacking off in situations where his team needs baserunners and he doesn't have a chance to pad his personal RBI stats? What a bum. Maybe he needs to spend some time with Pete Rose.
McGwire was my favorite player as a kid, so I find it a little strange that his time with the A's seems to have been completely wiped from memory. Obviously the Cards are the last team he played for and there's the lingering memory of the home run chase, but he spent much more time with the A's and did win a championship with them.
Over/under on the chances McGwire will replace Mattingly?
Have perceptions really changed? I still think of him as an A first and foremost, but maybe I'm not typical.
It'd be interesting to explore why certain hitters are so much better with men on or RISP, moreso than the average player.
Less cryptically, that kind of analysis always seems to miss the point of the question. Ballplayers aren't marbles on the roulette board. It seems much too easy to say Allen Craig is lucky.
