Fun with Splits: Back to Reality

Remember when Juan had that good game two nights ago? That was nice.

1. Grounded to third. #353.
2. Flied to center. #354.
3. Walked.
4. Grounded to short. #355.
5. Lined to pitcher. #356.

One more game played than Rollins; five more outs made.

Some people looked at Juan's hot streak a little while back and used it as evidence that Juan had turned his season around.

Not the case.

Juan Pierre, pre-All-Star break: .282/.311/.338/.649 in 373 AB. That's bad.
Juan Pierre, post-All-Star break: .253/.317/.307/.624 in 75 AB. Ouch, babe.

Juan is doing two things better in the last 3 weeks:

1. He's walking more. Since that's not his game, I expect it to fall off.
2. He has not been caught stealing. 34 SB/9 CS before the break; 9 SB/0 CS after. That's commendable.

That concludes Fun with Splits week. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming.
