I agree, but as I said Gomes, has always had huge left handed vs. right-handed splits. After doing some research, Heisey's minor league numbers are about even although up until this year he was better vs. lefties (.929 OPS vs. 801 OPS). Nix has a pretty big career split righty (.249) vs. lefty (.194). Bruce has somewhat of a split career (right .262, left .214) and season (left .242, right .268). Stubbs has virtually identical season (.235 and .236) and career stats vs. righties and lefties.
Obviously Gomes, (.275 - L and .232 - R) and Edmonds (.252 - L and .296 - R) have tremondous splits. I am going to post the numbers on a seperate thread though, becuase I think it is interesting to look at the OF splits. I still disagree with the platoons though. I think Heisey should be playing everyday center.
