Take a look through the 2011 New York Yankees lineup to see which batters are clutch, and which batters can't handle the heat.
- The first photo of each player shows their career stats as a Yankee. The second shows their career postseason stats as a Yankee, and their numbers in "late and close" situations.
- "Late and close" situations are plate appearances in the seventh inning or later with the batting team tied, ahead by one, or with the tying run at least on deck.
