Carl Yaz made the final out in both the 1975 World Series and 1978 playoff game. 

In 1978 I was certain he was going to hit a HR.

So...he choked. Would that be a fair assessment?

Meanwhile in Game 7 of 1975 Series, Joe Morgan delivered the GWRBI.
No that's not a fair assessment.

Still I wish there was something you would do or say to try and make me change my mind and stay. We never did too much talking anyway.
So don't think twice it's all right.

Of course it isn't fair. But we all have seen players villified for failing in a big spot. Carlos Beltran watching strike three go by to end a playoff series comes to mind.

My point is that no one here knocked Yaz as not being a great player. Just others are/were better. And that isn't a subjective analysis, whereas judging a "choke" would be.

Its neither fair nor accurate. Its idiotic.

But troll if you need to vilify Yaz, knock yourself out.

And troll  no one said Yaz was the best ever.

thats a false narrative.

I had him listed among the greats I had paid to see play.

Just like you paid to see Goose Goslin.

No one villified Yaz. But someone here with a dime view if reality flipped out when he found out Yaz was not as good a player as others.

At the very least that's abject immaturity. At best, it's delusional thinking.
