… actually better at hitting pitches from the same side (righty/righty) as you are from the platoon side (righty/lefty)?

SDS

I hit Righty/Righty just as good as Righty/Lefty. But I'm terrible Lefty/Lefty. Unless it's a lefty that I've used a lot and know his swing well. Max Muncy and Ryan McMahon in particular.

SDS

Right on right I am fine but L v L I look like i have a mental deficiency

SDS

I'm good lefty lefty but can't hit righty righty to save my life. It's the high and in fastballs and inside sinkers. I can't catch up to them

SDS

I hit lefties better regardless of my batter handedness. I prefer lefty vs lefty then having a right hander on the mound vs my power lefty

SDS

That depends on the hitter I am using. Robinson, Soriano, and some others great R on R, but Evans and Bechette, I have hard time hitting R on R.

SDS

I suck at lefty lefty. I'm honestly not that good with lefty batter righty pitcher too though.

Depends on the batter, Ortiz for example just crushes everything for me this year.

SDS

I love righty righty, lefty pitcher on lefty hitter and righty pitcher on lefty batter. For some reason I struggle lefty pitcher on righty hitter.

True. I love lefty, lefty though. People get incredibly predictable pitching wise in this situation. Fastball in, slider out..I’d say 90% of the players online stick to that formula.

SDS

If they have a sinker then I struggle same handedness. If they have slider/cutter then I struggle oppo handed.

That is true the Best pitch for me to use L VS L is way down and in Change up are CB.throw the slider way off down and away then the CB. Got mix it up. My Era is stellar in RS but my avg is .196 I play a lot of Low scoring games in RS. My lineup has gotten better over the last two weeks. My avg should start to improve when I start playing RS again.

SDS

I hit RH pitching better across the board with LH and RH batters.

Against LH pitching, I do ok with RH batters and meh with LH batters.

SDS

Honestly as a lefty batter against lefty pitchers I struggle the most with changeups low for some reason. Fastballs in and sliders away I’ve seen so much it’s like childs play.

Change ups are your friend if you get them low enough.

SDS

Oh yeah, if I recognize early enough then it’s gone lol. But, It’s more rare to see it lefty lefty so I’m not as used to it.

SDS

I love hitting righty righty. Even more than facing an opposite handed pitcher.

Do you think it is because you have seen it more often over the years of playing?

Yeah and also because I'm a right handed batter myself, so it feels more natural to me if that makes sense.
