While watching the World Series, I noticed that Mariano Duncan was
batting right-handed against Stewart.  When he played for the Dodgers,
he was a switch-hitter, but he batted .270 right-handed and .200
left-handed.  Does anyone know when he started batting right-handed
against everyone, and what his splits against left and right-handed
pitchers are?  Is this why he has suddenly become a .300 hitter?

Don't know when he started hitting righthanded only, but I noticed the
same things this season, too.  I think the breakdown was somewhere in
the neighborhood of .390 vs lefties and .240 vs righties.

I don't know when he gave up on switch-hitting, but I don't think
this is the reason he's hitting better.  The reason I say this is
that he's hitting about .350 against left-handers this year and I
think about .230 against right-handers.  So he hasn't started
hitting right-handed pitchers any better.  Should be an ideal platoon
candidate with Doran as the other half.

I've often wondered why more switch-hitters don't do the same thing,
though.  They hit about .080 - .100 better from one side: it seems a
strong possibility, at least, that they would hit better batting
exclusively from their better side.
