Define "Unclutch"

6 GIDPs last night.  6!  That's a bad number over a 2 or 3-game stretch, let alone over the first 8 innings of 1 game.  And from 6 different batters?  That's just unreal.  Definitely not the kind of AL record you want to be setting.

And it would be one thing if it was against Cliff Lee or Josh Johnson or King Felix, or somebody who was actually a good pitcher.  But this was against Matt Harrison.  Who the hell is Matt Harrison?!?!  The bats better wake up today because there were plenty of chances to put up more than 3 runs last night and the Yankees flat out didn't take advantage of them.
