Now that Dan Brooks is working with the Brewers Who will write the next big thing?

Edit:  Apparently this wasn’t a serious Tweet. That will teach me to believe certain people on Twitter. I should know better.

Forecasting Pitcher Platoon Splits – The Hardball Times

Not any shocking findings but interesting nonetheless.

Managers, it appears, stack their lineups with more lefties when facing right-handed pitching but pay little attention to the projected platoon split of the pitcher. The right-handed pitchers projected to have reverse splits faced roughly as many left-handed batters as the right-handed pitchers with the most extreme projected splits and dramatically more left-handed batters than the left-handed pitchers with the weakest projected splits. Daily fantasy managers may well act similarly and, in either world, some advantage could be accrued by looking at more than just a pitcher’s throwing hand.
