Sorry if this has been discussed already, but I was looking at his split stats (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/8422/splits;_ylt=AqObYbWq8BihTL1j5Qwt46eFCLcF)and was wondering if anyone has a clue why he hits .230 at home and .372 on the road. :dunno:

I thought the cell was supposed to be a great hitters park? Or is it The Outfield's "Your Love" that is distracting him?

I just find it amazing that he's hitting .727 in Cleveland. :o:

Beckham is attributed his poor batting average at home to "trying to to do much for the hometown fans." He also played his first seven games at home going 2 for 24.

Good point. I guess I had mentally blocked that terrible start.

The Sox as a team have not hit well at home this year.

Even when you take those at-bats out he's only hitting about .260 at home. Whatever, Beckham is the man.

Speaking of The Road Warrior, all three Mad Max movies are older than Beckham.

Excuse me while I feel really, really old.
