Just in case you were wondering, Bonds is not an actual human being.
From Joe Sheehan on BP today:
"For someone who has suffered with a reputation as being unclutch, he's been dragging the Giants to the top of the wild-card standings with his teeth. He's hitting .400/.622/.930 since Aug. 1, a stretch in which every game has had huge importance to his team's chances.
My favorite Bonds stat actually isn't that one. Do you know what he hits after he falls behind 0-2?
James Click tells me that the NL hits .194/.235/.303 when they fall behind 0-2. Bonds' 1093 OPS is a "normal" MVP line, and it's what he hits after getting into the worst possible situation for a hitter. Bonds hits like an MVP when he spots the league two strikes, which is insane.
Pac Bell Park remains one of the toughest run environments in baseball. In 2004, however, it's a berry patch for Bonds. He's hitting .420/.637/.938 at home.
Bonds has an .825 OBP when the count gets to 2-0, with nearly three times as many walks as at-bats. (Intentional walks are a big part of this, but still....825?)
Bonds' batting average, currently .368, is all the more amazing when you consider that he faces perhaps the most extreme shift in baseball history, one designed to kill his ability to get hits on balls in play."
