I wonder if you guys think that reverse splits are a real thing for pitchers. The reason I ask is that I noticed Sean Newcombe has huge reverse splits over the last two years, however he pitched twice against the pads in the last two weeks and they started a virtually all righty lineup, i think they scored a total of 1 run against newcombe. I am sure the pads manager is much smarter than me, if reverse splits are a real things why would he start an all righty lineup?
Also, if they are a real thing I have never seen a switch hitter bat the opposite way against a reverse split pitcher. All the numbers I look at say it is real, but I have never seen anyone manage as if they are. Is it just a case of conventional wisdom type thing and managers don’t think outside the box?
