Jim Thome - Only hitting lefties now?

Postby BigTex24 » Wed Apr 16, 2008 7:16 pm

How frustrating has he been so far lol? Just hit a 3 run bomb..against a lefty, so of course he's been on my bench. his 3 HRs have all been off lefties..last year he only hit 6 hrs against lefties and hit below .200.

Yeah I noticed that myself. Very frustrating as I use him in my Util spot when he faces RHP only !+)

He's hitting .069 against RHP with 1 RBI and .350 against LHP with 3 HR's and 9 RBI's :-P

Ortiz is the same. The only HR he's hit this year was against a leftie. 47 AB's against RHP's and 1 lone RBI. WTF is going on.

I feel your pain... now have missed all 3 of his homers this year. But the his splits will approach their normal range as the season goes on and sample size gets larger. Stick to benching him vs. Lefties and be happy that he's healthy.
