Interesting tidbit on Morneau's splits
I was perusing baseball stats this morning and came across this oddity:
Justin Morneau has this slash line against lefties:No big surprise there, right?
.137 .170 .221 .391
But here is his slash line against left-handed starters:
Still bad but not nearly as "oh my god, he's clueless" as his overall slash line.
.203 .268 .351 .620
The odd thing is that he has 82 PAs against left-handed starters but only 100 PAs against lefties in general.
Basically, Morneau is completely hopeless against left-handed specialists late in the game, going a mighty 2-19 against them with two walks and a double.
Yikes. SSS and all but I found the data to be interesting.

Is this for 2012 only, or are these career stats?You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.
