For the files: Sam Miller expounds on the history of "clutch", including
several drops of "clutchest". The article ostensibly compares two players
but takes a long detour into the history of the term and some numerical
metrics. There are some misses - he fails to document - or even note - the
transition from the original PP to mostly adjectival use more recently and
he only relates it narrowly to baseball, although there's plenty of use in
connection with other sports. It's not meant to be real research - history
is just the hook.
