It is awfully early in his career and the sample size is too small to speak about much now, but I will be investigating Bobby Borchering splits from each side of the plate in 2010. Obviously any switch hitter will get a significantly greater number of at bats from the left side which is another variable in the whole operation. Of the impressive video I saw of Borchering’s prep career, I believe all the great swings I saw were from the left side. For all the struggles early on, it’s worth noting that his playoff hot streak increased his final rookie league line to .263/.300/.509. The plate discipline must get better though, obviously.

That ISO is a statistic for idiots. You give us Borchering’s line of 241/290/425 and then tell us his ISO is .184 like we can’t subtract 241 from 425. Well duh. Who the hell started that crap?
