A reader's email regarding
article comparing Babe Ruth to Ted Williams prompted more nostalgia: a trip
to Splitsville. Get the details on how the evolution of relief pitching may have affected the greatest hitters of all time.
June 25, 2008 - Milton Bradley and More -
As you know, Milton Bradley is a talented player whose home games are played in a hitters park, so you probably figured that his numbers are aided somewhat by playing at The Ballpark in Arlington.
But if you are like Asher, you had no idea as to how disparate his splits actually are.
After Asher took a look at the splits of the two notorious Texas Rangers, he decided to look around the league a little more, and discovered not only that Milton Bradley may have some history-making company, but also happened upon two of the most underrated players in baseball.
February 1, 2007 - Ground Ball Pitchers
You've probably seenKeith rant about Chien-Ming Wang's home/road splits being affected by the Yankees allegedly softening their infield dirt before home games. An extreme groundball pitcher like Wang with a lackluster infield defense like the Yankees' would underscore this effect.
Are the Yankees the only team smart enough to employ this tactic?

The impact on Mike Piazza’s career numbers has been impressive.
January 17, 2007 - Sammy's Return to Texas
So, the question is – Will Sammy Sosa have a successful comeback with the Texas Rangers?
In his first ever Splitsville article, Asher assures us that if Sosa is healthy, the Ballpark in Arlington will convince the baseball viewing public that Sammy Sosa is once again a viable major league outfielder.
You always hear that you shouldn’t take April stats too seriously. Fortunately, we now have May statistics with which to compliment them. For the players with vastly disparate April and May stats, Keith decides which month more accurately reflects each player’s abilities.
Brewers, Blue Jays, Phillies, Rangers, and Mets fans: see how a careful analysis of split statistics elucidates your team's offseason moves. Also, Indoor/Outdoor splits are explored for the first time in Splitsville history.
After sifting through some interesting staring pitching splits concerning Pre/Post All Star Break, Home/Away, and Lefty/Righty statistics, Keith uncovers a trend among relievers that might just alter the way you analyse them from now on.
Keith unearths some interesting numbers on Hoyt Wilhelm, Eddie Murray, Dick Allen, Bob Tewksbury, Eddie Mathews, The Big Hurt, and Tony Perez in his inaugural analysis of baseball splits.
