The Dord of Darien

Musings from the Mayor of the Internet

All areas of the field

The Giants’ announcers just described Carlos Ruiz as a hitter who hits to all areas of the field.

Here you fill find Carlos Ruiz’s spray chart for Citizens Bank Park. Notice that all of his home runs, all but one of his doubles, and about 85% of his singles go straight left. Carlos Ruiz is a dead pull hitter, at least in CBP.

Now, granted, we’re playing at AT&T and not Citizens Bank tonight, but Ruiz doesn’t have a hit at AT&T. And there’s no reason to believe he suddenly starts hitting opposite-field smashes constantly due to venue changes.

So: good work, Giants announcers! You were 100% right, except that you were wrong.
