Lefties vs. Lefties


75+ PA vs. LHP, .900+ OPS vs. LHP (LHB, 2010)
1.003 Chase Utley (Phillies)
.966 Justin Morneau (Twins)
.953 Kelly Johnson (D-Backs)
.951 Brennan Boesch (Tigers)
.937 Adrian Gonzalez (Padres)
.926 Logan Morrison (Marlins)
.925 Carlos Gonzalez (Rockies)
.906 Nick Markakis (Orioles)

In 2010, there were 71 left handed batters with more than 75 plate appearances against left handed pitchers, and only 8 with an OPS of better than .900 in those situations.  There were also 8 in 2009, and the only repeats were Chase Utley and Kelly Johnson. 

The lowest in 2010 was Adam Lind (.312), who was 28th out of 79 in 2009 (.780).  Chase Utley was the first LHB with an OPS over 1.000 in 75+ PA since Travis Hafner in 2006.
