Stubbs vs. Sliders

Drew Stubbs was one of the best slider hitters in the game last season.  In fact, he absolutely crushed the pitch, hitting .378/.419/.745 with 6 doubles, 3 triples, and 8 HRs in 105 plate appearances decided by a slider. 

His entire slash line against sliders ranked in the top 99th percentile in the league, and his wOBA of .488 was the best in all of baseball.  In fact, it was 51 points better then the next guy on the list, Hideki Matsui, and 206 points better than league average.

It's like a hurricane of pain for opposing pitchers....
