The Man Who Loves the Opposite Field

on .

Matt Diaz doesn't have a lot of power. He only has seven homers this year, good for seventh on the Braves. But he actually leads the Braves in off-field home runs -- four of his homers have gone to right field, more than half his total. That's more than Adam LaRoche, Brian McCann, Nate McLouth, Martin Prado, Yunel Escobar, and Garret Anderson, according to Hit Tracker. It's better than anyone on the team other than Chipper, as far as I can tell.

He's a weird player, that's for sure. But a good one.
