According to Michael Kay on today's YES broadcast, Alex Rodriguez is tied for the major league lead with 9 "tack-on homeruns" in 2008. A "tack-on homerun" by definition is one when your team is up by 3 or more runs. It makes perfect sense! The opposing team can never come back from a three run deficit.
The real comedy in this is that Michael Kay became obsessed with this "stat" in a game that saw the Yankees come back from a 5-0 deficit, and the Angels come back from an 8-5 deficit.
Remember kids, if your team is up by 3 runs or more, you should just make an out. Definitely don't hit a homerun. That run will be meaningless and will NEVER help your team win a game.
Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!
Michael Kay will hate you for "tacking on"
