  Clutchiness Updated
The clutchiness numbers have been updated through June 30th, except for the Yankees. I will keep checking in with Fangraphs to see when the Yankees seasonal numbers are updated, at which point I can do my update. If it happens before tomorrow's update, I will make a note of it here.

Of note: Adam Dunn's Ultimate Grand Slam caps a tremendous three game run of win probability additions. At the start, Dunn had a negative WPA on the season. Then he just barely crossed into the positive with a 5.7 WPA. The next two games saw Dunn hit an eighth-inning, two-out double that drove in the game-winning run, and the aforementioned walk-off slam. And after the dust settled, Dunn's WPA reached 118.2, second on the team.

Clutch hitting may or may not exist. Clutchiness most certainly does. By comparing a player's value in terms of win probability to his projected value based on OBP and SLG, we see how much he has over- or under-performed expectations due to performance in higher leverage situations. If clutch exists, it might just look like this.
