Well this is what I get for reading a couple posts on redleg america or whatevrr that board is called and not checking up! Billy actually had .370 obp vs lefties. 418 vs righties in HiA and a .402 obp vs lefties and the same. 418 vs RH in A. So yes he is nominally better vs righties getting on but I was wrong - his numbers are hardly scuffling vs lefties! Alsjo his SP almost reverses these respective splis viz a viz lefty and righty balancing things out. He hits for a fair bit more power vs lefties while getting on more vs righties. I was wrong... just trade Drew already and go with young William...
