Can Someone Teach Brandon Nimmo To Switch Hit?

Another bat L, throw R. Another natural right hander choosing to hit left handed because "left hand hitters have the advantage." Except that so many people are doing the same thing, I'm not sure it's an advantage anymore. It certainly isn't an advantage for the Mets, who have been left hand heavy forever. It's like a crowded trade. The new market inefficiency. Good right handed bats are scarce, and teams can get wiped out by left handed pitchers without them.

Just imagine the Mets line-up without Scott Hairston or David Wright. With Kirk Niewenhuis (bat L, throw R) and Daniel Murphy (bat L throw R) in their place. And Jordany Valdespin (bat L throw R) taking Murphy's current place at second. With Lucas Duda (bat L throw R) in left field. And Josh Thole (bat L throw R) behind the plate. Is Ike Davis really left handed? Or did he just learn to get a further advantage by learning to both throw AND bat left handed?

Thank goodness Wilmer Flores throws right AND bats right. Perhaps the news that "left handers have the advantage" has not reached everyone in Venezuela.
