Denard Span cannot hit lefties this season. The numbers speak for themselves. .154 BA. .222. OBP. 176 SLG.
Over his career, the numbers are better, but this season he’s been brutal, and Davey needs to make a change. Timing is everything is life, because the Nationals just traded for a player who absolutely murders lefthanded pitching. Scott Hairston has a career .500 SLG vs. lefties.
This one isn’t complicated. Davey, when a lefty is on the mound, how about a little less Span, and a little more Hairston.
