  6. You never leave your apartment anyway.

  7. But before, he’d pay attention when his friends/family came to visit. Now, nothing’s going to distract him from his 5 tabbed pages of FanGraphs.

  8. Hey Dave, this is amazing. There were a couple of comments today on Viva El Birdos about why FanGraphs doesn’t have splits…

    …and then I go to FanGraphs and see this. Awesome.

    Just one request. Could you make it so we can see the league average splits as well?

    Comment by vivaelpujols — February 7, 2010 @ 11:14 pm

  9. This is terrific.

    Pretty much means the only thing I’d ever go to baseball-ref for now is that really cool thing where you can select a custom period of time(June 17 to September 8 or whatever) and see a player’s stats for the time frame. But don’t add that; wouldn’t want to put them out of business…

    Seriously though, you guys are awesome. Thank you, David!

  10. There will probably be a page where you can see the league average splits separately, but I’m not sure if it will be an inline collapsible view like on the season stats pages. There’s just a lot of data there and it might get even more confusing, but I haven’t completely ruled it out.

    Comment by David Appelman — February 7, 2010 @ 11:23 pm

  11. That and they have position information by games played for players in the minors… That’s handy too

    Comment by Bret — February 7, 2010 @ 11:30 pm

  12. Oh my god, this is orgasmic.

    Comment by Kevin S. — February 7, 2010 @ 11:34 pm

  13. Huge help. Big step forward for the Site, eliminates my need to click back and forth from Baseball-Reference to here. Thanks guys. Keep up the good work.

  14. uh, i left once when someone told me about “fangraphs: the movie”, turns out it was actually swimfan 2. what a waste.

    Comment by JDanger — February 7, 2010 @ 11:37 pm

  15. Cool, thanks.

    Comment by vivaelpujols — February 7, 2010 @ 11:38 pm

  16. Dave,

    One important comment:

    You are an absolute stud. Thanks so much. You’re going to slowly drive the other stat reference sites out of business at this rate…

    Your hard work is very much appreciated.

    Comment by Patrick — February 7, 2010 @ 11:45 pm

  17. Fangraphs just keeps getting better …

    Comment by Lucas A. — February 7, 2010 @ 11:58 pm

  18. Any chance we’ll see this applied to the Teams section as well? So we could, for example, compare which players on a given team are raking against lefties best. Lookin at how the Teams page is formatted, I’m not sure how you would incorporated it. But it would be much appreciated.

    Still great to see it on the individual pages. Big improvement to an already invaluble site!

    Comment by Patrick M — February 8, 2010 @ 12:07 am

  19. This would be really cool to see in the “My Team” area!

    Comment by Phildo3000 — February 8, 2010 @ 12:09 am

  20. The addition of splits instantaneously makes one of the best online baseball statistics resources arguably THE best baseball statistics database. Thank you very much, FanGraphs.

    Comment by HarbingerOfMonotony — February 8, 2010 @ 12:13 am

  21. Oh lordy lord, the one thing FanGraphs didn’t have. I love this site.

    Now my only request is an increase in functionality for the iPhone app.

    Regardless, this is the best baseball statistics site on the interweblings, bar none. Thanks for all your hard work in building this community.

    Comment by Mojowo11 — February 8, 2010 @ 12:15 am

  22. Dear Fangraphs,

    Unfortunately, I don’t need a rental car at the moment. But I promise to start paying better attention to your advertisers.



    Comment by Jimbo — February 8, 2010 @ 12:26 am

  23. The career splits are damn near impossible to read, especially for a player with a long career.

    Comment by Dan Novick — February 8, 2010 @ 12:35 am

  24. I wonder if anyone will ever do PROJECTION SPLITS.

    That. Would. Be. AWESOME.

    Comment by BJ McKay — February 8, 2010 @ 12:37 am

  25. Would adding the headers after every “split” help?

    Comment by David Appelman — February 8, 2010 @ 12:49 am

  26. Mojo,

    It’s Interwebblags. Seriously!

    …. :p :)

    Comment by Patrick — February 8, 2010 @ 12:51 am

  27. Probably, but I’m not sure. It might end up making the page really long.

    Comment by Dan Novick — February 8, 2010 @ 12:53 am

  28. This is a wonderful addition. Thank you for all your hard work.

    Comment by TrustBaseball — February 8, 2010 @ 12:55 am

  29. Perhaps there’s some way to be able to highlight or cursor-over a stat and have a little reminder box pop up with the stat category name?

    Comment by HarbingerOfMonotony — February 8, 2010 @ 12:58 am

  30. The other option is to split it up into multiple tables… but I was trying to avoid that. I think having extra headers isn’t going to make the page that much longer, and when it’s collapsed the extra headers will go away.

    Comment by David Appelman — February 8, 2010 @ 1:06 am

  31. This is a great addition to a great site. This should irk the people who have been questioning the use of splits in comments, maybe it will get new converts.

    Thanks for everything!

    Comment by obsessivegiantscompulsive — February 8, 2010 @ 1:14 am

  32. Thanks for adding this. One less reason to rely on other stats sites to get data. However, how about 3-year splits? Would seem to be a good bridge between “Career” and individual seasons.

    Comment by And That — February 8, 2010 @ 2:02 am

  33. my thought exactly.

    somewhere, someone at sheds a single tear.

    Comment by tom s. — February 8, 2010 @ 2:26 am

  34. My roto research prayers have been answered!

    Comment by Bodhizefa — February 8, 2010 @ 3:08 am

  35. B-R’s splits tool is far more powerful. For example specifically regarding pitchers:

    It’s not just L/R, home/away and month-to-month splits, which is what Fangraphs has.

    It includes role (sterter versus reliever), count situation, plate appearance (1st? 2nd? 3rd? time through the lineup), based on outcome (useful for seeing consistency: in wins, are they better, or is it luck? save situations? non-saves?), versus lead off hitters, on-base, outs recorded, inning-to-inning, days of rest, batted ball hit location (wish it could be digitized into a spray chart, but alas), team splits, game conditions (day/night, open, dome, grass, turf), ballparks and by which catcher they’re throwing to. It’s insane.

    Props to Dave and the gang here for the update, but B-R is still quite useful.

    Comment by Hark — February 8, 2010 @ 3:16 am

  36. Yet another great addition to a wonderful site.
    Would I be out of line to ask that these useful stats be added to the leaderboards as well? It would be great to compare players’ split stats, especially vs.R/vs.L


    Comment by LordSirDave — February 8, 2010 @ 4:33 am

  37. Great addition, another split that would be useful, would be a pre/post allstar split.

    Comment by Bobby Boden — February 8, 2010 @ 8:39 am

  38. This is AWESOME. As a complete amateur this was the only thing I noticed as missing from this great site when I started using it 2 months ago. Well done.

    Comment by Tim In Missouri — February 8, 2010 @ 9:06 am

  39. marry me

    Comment by Matty Brown — February 8, 2010 @ 9:19 am

  40. HOORAYY!!!!

    Comment by gmat2 — February 8, 2010 @ 11:11 am

  41. … and I jizzed in my pants!

    Comment by AInquisition — February 8, 2010 @ 11:15 am

  42. Yes, this is great that Fangraphs is rolling out split data. I would really like to see (as mentioned above one time) splits as part of the “Leaders” output. I would like to export a list of all LHB vs LHP, LHB vs RHP, RHB vs RHP, RHB vs LHP. Having this option would finally make me cancel my baseball reference subscription.

    Comment by xeifrank — February 8, 2010 @ 1:47 pm

  43. It’s really powerful, but most of it isn’t particularly useful(I personally just don’t care about day/night splits and the like). Damn if I don’t like screwing around with time-period stats, though.

    And the info Bret mentioned is neat, too.

    Comment by TCQ — February 8, 2010 @ 3:13 pm

  44. Thank you so much. That was the only thing missing from your player pages.

    You are now my #1 baseball reference site!

    Comment by Stan S. — February 8, 2010 @ 4:04 pm

  45. I second the motion for iPhone app splits, por favor.

    Comment by Bodhizefa — February 8, 2010 @ 7:59 pm

  46. Any chance we can get pitch value splits? It would be very useful in seeing how left handers hit certain pitches from certain pitches better than right handers, and hopefully explain some of these vast platoon split divides.

    Comment by jw — February 9, 2010 @ 10:26 am

  47. Is there any way you guys could add pitch type to the splits? I’d love to see what pitches pitchers tend to throw in certain counts and base/out situations.

    Comment by Danny — February 9, 2010 @ 11:18 am

  48. This. Please.

    Comment by Yakker — February 23, 2010 @ 4:37 pm

  49. Spectacular!
