which potentially bloats a right handed hitters numbers for the Sox

Ross was a monster while hitting in the confines of the Monster but was actually close to pathetic away from the Friendly Green Giant

similar number of abs home and away and DRAMATIC differences in productivity

Lucas Duda may be a better hitter for THIS team/stadium than Cody Ross would be playing 81 games at Citi

the Mets and their FO would be wise to take a close look at players like Ross and Fowler away from their home parks to get a fairer idea of what we may be buying with a large contract or prospects

Bay was virtually identical home/away in 2009 and hit more home runs away

so Ross is probably even more of a risk then

WOW -- that's just unbelievable. I don't think I've ever seen splits like that.

At Fenway in 2012:
.298 BA
.356 on-base
.565 SLG

Elsewhere in 2012:
.232 BA
.294 on-base
.390 SLG

That's REALLY a dramatic difference, but you'll find a big disparity in lots of Red Sox greats...Yaz, Boggs, Rice

yeah,buyer beware with this particular player especially coming to a park like Citifield

he would look good on paper in our lineup but the on the field numbers might very well disappoint

Ehhh, this seems unfair to suggest considering Ross put up the exact same type of seasons in Florida, and you certainly wouldn't classify that park as a haven for hitters.

even if that is the case, he would STILL be better than anything we have...and at a 1 or 2 yr cheap contract, he would be worth it.
