You all probably already know about this place, but I just found it. Of course info pre-2011 is available elsewhere already, but now 2011 and 2012 is here:

Wrong link. Unless you did that just to make me look at Pete Rose and think 'that is what you deserve'. In which case, good job.

Thanks for the site. I checked on Henry Rodriquez. It looks like his power is really sapped hitting left-handed. Might he be better served by staying on one side of the dish?

Rodriguez has extreme one side power, from both sides of the plate. Essentially, if he isn't pulling the ball, he is a singles hitter. He has next to no power up the middle or to the opposite field, regardless of the side of the plate. But, he is a good singles hitter from both sides of the plate, so let him keep on doing what he is doing. He hat hit .300+ at every step of the way.

Ok. But I'm still not sure I get it. His BA and OBP are virtually identical from either side. His GB%, LD%, OFB%, K% and BB% are all pretty close. But he hits far more doubles and homers from the right side, leading to 146 point difference in SLG. Is it a ballpark effect?

He has always had more power from the right side, but this year is showing significant differences. Could be park factors at play. Could just be a small sample size given he has 140 at bats, split up between lefties and righties.

In 2010, his Isolated Power (SLG-AVG) to the pull sides in the outfield were .520 and .719. Last year, they were more dramatic, but he still showed ok pull power from the left side though his power from the right side was even more.
