Vs RHP- 310 AVG 33 RBI 6 HR 9 2B in 155AB's
Vs LHP- 188AVG 3 RBI 0 HR 0 2B in 48 AB's 8-o


Career:
vs RHP .308/.425/.574 .999 OPS
vs LHP .271/.374/.427 .800 OPS

This year he has an OPS of only .576 vs LHP but .852 vs RHP.

If you're not in a shallow all-star league, playing the best matchups with your lower ranked players can give you an edge. Its difficult when you bench Giles vs a LHP and he goes 3-5 with an HR, but you just have to ride that out.

It's a lot more work to check out the best matchups every day instead of just playing studs, but we can't all have studs at every slot.


Yeah, he's slumping BADLY over the last 10 games though. He has THREE TIMES as many strikeouts as walks. For some players you might shrug and say 'so what' but for anyone that knows Giles' career history that's pretty staggering. He's driving me batty as I don't have all that deep of a team (this is a rebuilding year for me in a keeper) and I really need reliable production from him at least in the r/rbi/ave areas.

The most obvious is the Broussard/Perez platoon in Cleveland, they will lose ABs in interleague play but should continue to be very good after.
Gil Meche is great at home.
Austin Kearns and Bill Hall both crush lefties.
Raul Ibanez is great vs righties.

Cuddyer, Craig Wilson, Matt Murton, Jose Cruz, Eric Byrnes and Juan Encarnacion all have good splits vs lefties. ;-D

Sean Marshall's are pretty drastic as well, only the other way around.

3.12 home era
6.44 away era


I have both of the pitchers I mentioned, and I never checked this until now even though I knew that they had crazy splits. Needless to say unless I'm desperate for a win/ks I'm not starting Harang at home or Marshall on the road until they straighten it out...

Francouer is batting .212 against righties and .365 against lefties. Of course he only has 63 ABs v. lefties and 226 against righties.

Well it makes sense seeing that he is a flyball pitcher that pitches in one of the most homerun-inducing ballparks in the majors. ;-D
