Splits Leaderboards

On all the leaderboards pages, you can now filter by all sorts of splits, including handedness, batted ball type, home/away, leverage, etc…

Want to know who the 4th best qualified pull hitter was last season according to wRC+? No problem; it was Paul Konerko.

How about which second baseman hit the most home runs against right handed pitchers?

Or even which pitcher had the lowest FIP on the road?

Splits filtering can also be done at the full team level, in the team pages, and in the My Team sections of the site.

  4. This made my week. Thanks so much!
    One question on the bunt splits – am I correct in assuming that PA represents all bunts hit into play?

    David: can you move the “last x calendar years” into a separate pull down box? And can you make the “x” float for longer than 3?

    I’d like to answer: who was the best hitter in high-leverage situations over the last 5 years.

    Awesome thanks David! Any chance we can get first and second half leaders though? I was looking for 2nd half leaders the other day but couldn’t find it anywhere

    I almost feel bad to ask for it, but could we get HLDs for relievers?

    Wow this is amazing. I have one suggestion of adding pre and post a.s. break splits

    This is fantastic, David. I know it took a lot of work to implement this, but I’m really glad that you did, and it added enormously to the site. Thank you very much!

      Whoa, some pretty crazy stuff comes out of the small sample sizes. For instance: did you know that Michael Bourn had a .523 wOBA (?!?) in high leverage situations this year? You also see just how outrageously good Votto and Gonzalez are to the opposite field.

      Thanks for adding tERA to the leaderboards, too. It’s a nice complement to the fielding-independent statistics.

    Thanks for the early X-mas present. So much fun to play around with. For example . . .

    A list of the 15 worst pull hitters of 2010 features a dozen micro-slashers, Jeter, Kotchman and . . . Matt Wieters? That’s not a good sign.

    Juan Pierre
    Cesar Izturis
    Nyjer Morgan
    Michael Bourn
    Skip Schumaker
    Chone Figgins
    Elvis Andrus
    Casey Kotchman
    Derek Jeter
    Brendan Ryan
    Omar Vizquel
    Denard Span
    Matt Wieters
    Starlin Castro
    Julio Borbon

    Good stuff!

    David – How hard would it be to have the ability to do 2 combined filters (like if you wanted to look at pull + grounder or flyball + high leverage). I’m guessing way harder than it sounds, but I thought I’d ask. It’s along the lines of Tangotiger’s question/request above, except more expansive (not just splitting out the year splits separately)… basically having side by side filter pull downs.

    And this should teach you to add functionality! You’re just going to get a bunch more requests; this sort of stuff is real easy to implement, no? (I’m kidding)

    Again, real nice stuff!

    It doesn’t allow to use splits for relievers only?
    For example, when filtering for “vs L” splits, it only displays “All”, even if you click “Relievers”.
