Many think Holliday is now a big risk moving away from Coors. I think he's no risk at all. Your only argument is home/away splits .
Check out these home / away splits .
Wright; Home .336 21 hr's
Away .271 12 hr's
A-Rod Home .334 21 hr's
Away .280 14 hr's
Braun Home .305 23 hr's
Away .266 17 hr's
Howard Home .261 26 hr's
Away .241 21 hr's
Hamilton Home .345 19 hr's
Away .263 13 hr's
Sizemore Home .322 21 hr's
Away .216 12 hr's
Now Holliday Home .322 15 hr's
Away .308 10 hr's
Holliday's road splits are better % wise than all of these elite players.
I guess that means , If I use a home/away argument that Sizemore is not a first round pick. Wasn't he voted the # 1 outfielder in the cafe poll ? How can that be ? He's awful on the road.
Wright was a lot better at home . Shea was a pitchers park. So the type of park doesn't always matter.
That home / away argument about Holliday is lame. Plus the stats you're giving about Holliday are away stats. All the elite players I mentioned before are better at home. Why can't Holliday be better at his new home ?
And to top it off Holliday will be facing pitchers that are as a group much weaker . ( AL west vs. NL West )
So now there should be a new group of Sizemore doubters . The ones that are using home / away splits.
Holliday was the only one of these elite players to hit over .300 on the road. I'm not worried about him at all. I Would be glad to take him late in the first round.
All you Holliday doubters , do you now doubt Sizemore , Hamilton , and these before mentioned sluggers as well ?
