these look like 2007 to me. only way they are meaningful is if you look at the career history and figure out if it's a trend or just an anomaly.

how many starts has randy johnson made on the road and at home this year? the answer is 5 starts at home and 3 on the road. think this is a good sample size? and if you took the time to actually look into the data, his first 4 starts of the season when he came off the injury were all at home before he got back into the groove of things. that is far more meaningful data than throwing out some nonsensical useless split stat.
