Maglio Ordonez (judging by 3 year splits)

he bats 32 points higher post all star break.

he's a guy that clearly shows he's a better 2nd half player.

If you think Beltran is good now, wait til the second half.

Im checking by 3 year splits.

M. Ordonez bats for much better average after april and may(his worst batting months)

he bats 346 in June, 320 in July, 306 in august, and 320 in september. (he clearly has more value 2nd half.

he bats a combined 299 pre all star break and 333 post all star break

he's a guy im going after for sure.

his slugging % and OBP also raise considerably... but his doubles and HR's remain almost identical.

weird.
