Dreifort’s latest outing ‘a joke’

I’ve liked Dreifort since college. His ball explodes. It moves so much that it causes him problems. At least that’s what my memory and the analysis I’ve read says. Looking over his numbers, though, makes me think he’s simply a pitch short. Against righties he’s always had success (AVG/OBA/SLG: 2001 - .225/.291/.325, career - .235/.315/.353), while against lefties he struggles (2001 - .261/.377/.461, career - .268/.353/.433). I need to watch Dreifort a little more closely.
