Somehow, someway, he’s been associated with the word ‘clutch’. I’m not here to debate if he is or if he isn’t or if ‘clutch’ is even a real thing. I’m just here to point out that when he hits a go-ahead home run in the 9th inning, Twitter throws out the C-Word liberally.
Holliday clutch HR for the lead?!??!!? Holy cow. #StLCards
