whats going on with Sandoval, specifically from the right side?
Last season he was significantly better batting right handed than he was left handed. In fact his average in 2010 vs LHP was 60(!) pts higher than his avg vs RHP, and his OPS was nearly 100 pts higher!
This year his avg from the right side is over 60 pts LOWER than from the left... comparatively speaking, thats an incredible 120 pt swing.
And if you just take the raw numbers his right-handed avg has plumetted over 160 pts from last year!
Granted he has only 100 PA's from the right side so far this year and you can talk small sample size all you want, but its obvious something is drastically wrong.
I almost think there has to be some kind of injury the Panda's not telling anyone about, or a vision problem with one of his eyes, because this seems too drastic to be simply variation/bad luck.
What do you guys think?
