Hairston Jr is hitting around 400 against lefties,
but he doesn't do much else against them

Thanks to Yahoo's new "available players" feature, it's easy to see who hits well against lefties. Here are some notables:

M. Giles - .520 BA, 7 XBH in 25 AB's
Renteria - .432 BA, 13 XBH in 74 AB
Lowell - .400, 10, in 65
Rolen - .382, 9, in 55
Michael Young - .394, 14, in 104
I-Rod - .375, 12 in 112
Manny - .365, 18 in 85
Vlad - .364, 15, in 88
Belliard - .360, 16, in 114 8-o

There ya go. There are tons more, like Sheff, Wily Mo, Marrero, etc, but I'm not gonna list everybody :-D

Kaz hits lefties better, but won't run on them. Which makes him painful to play against either.
Frank Thomas has historically hit lefties better. But not so much this year.

Any way, I can see how knowing the splits can help you decide who to start or bench. But, how will it help you with a roster? Unless you've got a Broussard/Merloni platoon from the same team on your roster, what're the odds that your back up 1B who's a leftie killer is facing a leftie the same night as your starter?
Blessed are the cheesemakers.
