2019 Clutch Series 3 Insert Preview – Generations 1970’s

Frank Howard (Texas, 1970)

Okay, it’s official. The Capitol Punisher is the greatest nickname in Clutch history. Hit massive bombs with 2 icons, a 15 on base against lefties, and a natural HR for under 500 salary. Just don’t use him in the outfield. But it’s nice to know you can move him around if you need to. Take advantage of his positive clutch to make up for his high walk range.

Jim Palmer (Baltimore, 1975)

Jim Palmer is a true ace. Rare +2 clutch, 2 major icons, 6 command, 8 IP, and a 25+ HR for 630 salary. The man is a living legend in Baltimore, winning a championship with them in 3 different decades. Fire up the flapjacks, and stick this guy on the front end of your rotation.

Gorman Thomas (Milwaukee, 1979)

I wouldn’t be surprised to see this guy make it on to a lot of Clutch rosters. Thomas has an on base 12/lefty +1, the HR and RBI icons, and a natural HR for 345 salary. What’s the trade off? He plays centerfield with a +2 defense, and speed D. Just throw him in the DH spot like everyone else and call it a day.
