Also if you are going to go after Cano you should do it with a lefty. His OPS was some 80 points lower against them last season.

I agree that it's overdone at times but you cant completely ignore it.
That's all misleading. Since there's more righties, numbers against lefties are more extreme. If it were even, the numbers would even out too.
