Basic question ...

How exactly should I understand the "__% Against" statements on the advanced side of player cards?

I expect that it's the probability of success against an opponent of that handedness. But that doesn't seem likely, given the variations found on player cards (i.e., a card could have a very high percentage against left-handers and a very low against right-handers).

Thanks!!

I believe it is percent of that player's plate appearances that occurred against that handedness, and has nothing to do with effectiveness.

If so (and it seems very likely), any ideas about how to use that information in playing SOM?

Edit: I.E., are those facts represented somehow in a player's probablistic outcomes?

I had this question answered at a Strat-o-matic Fan Forum.
