Left AVG: .281 (167 AB)
Right AVG: .263 (445 AB)
Home AVG: .253 (293 AB)
Away AVG: .282 (319 AB)
Day AVG: .297 (239 AB)
Night AVG: .249 (373 AB)
I'm using Hart since he had some pretty significant swings especially in the Day/Night Split.
Should I put much emphasis on splits in general?
Well this is pretty simple. If Hart is facing a righty at home in a night game, you should probably sit him because his average is then the multiplication of the three individual averages:
.263 * .253 * .249 = .017
Pretty easy sit call to me...
Okay I'm just kidding. The only time I ever consider splits is when I have players of equal value in general. Most often I'll look at right vs left split and home vs away with preference on right vs left split. Day vs Night is usually much too small of a sample size to draw any major conclusions. Like GP said this works best for the guys at the end of your rosters...
