Denard Span still can’t hit lefties

There are a thousand problems with the 2013 Washington Nationals.  Denard Span is one of them.

At least against lefthanders he is. 

We’ve covered this before.  From the right side of the plate, Denard Span is a pretty solid hitter.  From the left side, he’s a disaster, and to be honest fits in quite nicely with the 2013 Nats.

Span is batting .309 with a .349 OBP and .438 slugging average against righthanders.

He’s batting .167 with a .265 OBP and a brutal .183 slugging against lefties.

With logic, Span would be benched against lefthanded starters, or at least bumped down in the order.  But he won’t, because he’s the Nats “lead-off hitter”.  Davey, don’t let the evidence get in the way of your managerial decisions.
