Which Team Is Better Left Or Right

I posted this on another question so sorry if anyone sees this twice. In some cases it’s better to be a lefty. In sports, let’s say baseball, teams like lefties because they give off a surprise factor because people aren’t expecting them. Also, pitchers are right handed most of the time, so they can’t throw properly to a lefty. I don’t know much about baseball but I guess that means the pitcher will throw badly and it’s good for the running team? I’m not sure don’t quote me. But also on teams like in hockey, soccer, volleyball, etc where there is a line up it’s better to have lefties on one side of the court because it’s easier for them and better for the team(a left handed person in volleyball on the left side of the court is better able to hit a ball back into the center of the court than a right handed person). Other than that, though, I assume it would be “better” to be right handed, because more things in the world are catered toward you. If you want a gun you have to buy an ambidextrous one if you’re a lefty which is more expensive, you have to buy different scissors and can openers and other tools. I’m mixed handed so I’ve got some of each world and it’s easier to be right handed at things. Being a lefty helped me a bit in the sports part because volleyball wanted lefties(I was one of two) to put on the left side of the court, but that’s all really. I would say that being right handed is probably better if you want things to be quick and easy(you won’t have to work around tools you can’t use) but if you are more interested in pursuing sports like baseball or boxing where being left handed is an advantage then it would be better to be a lefty.

Which is better, left or right?

If one is driving around and doing errands, RIGHT is better. I learned this from something that was on the news about either Fed Ex or UPS drivers only taking right hand turns as it saved them millions of dollars on gas, break jobs and time. So, now I plan my outings by taking advantage of using right turns there and on the way back in order to complete my rounds (post office, grocery store, bank, liquor store, pharmacy, etc...)

Well in my experience, it is more about the ears than the brain. I assess clients for learning and communication issues and I find that it is quite common for one ear to be more attuned to the key frequencies used for speech.By this I mean that the sensitivity of your right ear is neither too loud or soft for those frequencies important for speech. And, as importantly, the thresholds in that ear are less sensitive for the lower frequencies rich in background noises.In relation to music, there are different frequencies involved, depending on what type of music you prefer. for instance, if you were referring to the cello which is much lower in pitch than speech - your left ear might be better at collecting those frequencies which would also reduce your capacity to listen to speech in that ear. This is because background noises tend to be lower in pitch than speech.If your right ear is better for speech, then you are advantaged for listening and learning because right ear signal reach the brain slightly ahead of the left ear.As to the two hemispheres of the brain - they work together. This is not as simple as the proposition that left is for language and the right is for music. The research that I have seen suggests that music and language are processed in a similar way by the brain. And this is why music can be used to build language proficiency.For more on the functions of the left and right brain hemispheres, I commend the scholarly book “The Master and His Emissary[1]” by Iain McGilchrist. He provided a summary of his work in TED talk.What each ear collects is sent to both sides of the brain about 70% to the opposite side and ~30% to the same side.We fix learning disabilities in children and adults - L4LFootnotes[1] Iain McGilchrist : 9780300188370

Which team has the better left side of the infield?

Well, if we're talking about for the next five years, Wright and Reyes and its not even close.
For now? I'll still give it to Wright and Reyes for being almost as valuable offensively, and superior defensively. Its tough to determine, Jeter's been an offensive force for a shortstop for years, but Reyes has been terrific as well. Last year Jeter got on base a little more, they hit the same amount of homers, but Reyes stole 78 bases, with a 79% success rate. Considering also how terrible Jeter's range is at short, fairly average defense from Reyes puts him over Jeter by a pretty considerable margin. More so when you consider Jeter's declining (slowly, but he is) where as Reyes is entering his prime.
Now ARod versus Wright is a tough question really because of how good they both are (really the best infield of them would be ARod (better at short than Jeter or Reyes) and Wright. ARod had such an outlier of a year last year its tough to project their years this year. 1.067ops (best of his career), stole 15 (but only 65% success), 54 bombs, just incredible. Wright hit 30 bombs, stole 34 at an 87% success rate (WOW), .963 OPS, again absolutely terrific. Both play solid defense (neither deserve Gold Gloves, the biggest sham in sports awards), but both are quite good at it and neither gains much edge. They're similar players, though ARod has a bit more power and Wright a bit more speed. Arod averages 8.39 runs created per 27 outs, Wright 7.87, that's offset a bit by Arod's very early years being averaged out and Wright has so many less seasons thus far that his are not. I think its a wash when we consider that ARod, at 32, is very unlikely to reach what he did last year and Wright, at 25 and getting better every year might just surpass it.
So, given my preference of Reyes over Jeter, and the wash at third, even this year, I'd take the Mets. (though when we consider that the AL East is superior to the NL East....thus distorting their numbers slightly...)

p.s. on the Youkilis thing, he IS a third baseman. He came up as one, he plays third to spell Lowell and while he's hurt, but the general plan is for Youk to return to third (where he has more value) in a couple years when Lowell is gone.

Which looks better: left or right eye [PICS INCLUDED]?

attempt getting some pinkish plaid headbands, then a blouse with a collar, they're basic to locate at thrift shops yet you mos def choose one from A.E in the experience that your going for the preppy seem. i might the two pass with mild wash denims, White denims or a pleated tennis skirt. To good all of it off some residences or sneaker residences. stable luck, Btw your a cutie!

Which team is better right now? Spurs or Warriors?

Spurs cause they are playing great basketball, the Warriors don t care about the fundamentals of basketball they just dish it to curry, without curry the Warriors would not be as great as they are.

Right Handed / Left Handed pitchers vs. Right Handed / Left Handed batters?

lefties generally have an advantage over lefties, and the opposite is true for righties.
this is because it's easier to see the release point of the ball when you stand the opposite way. so when i bat right-handed against a lefty, i can clearly see him extend his arm and release the ball, which makes it easier to see the spin or grip on it. The ball is also moving in towards me so i can really drive it.
there are some pitchers though, who are better against batters of the same stance because of movement they get on the ball.

Baseball - righty vs lefty, lefty vs righty?

In a righty versus righty or lefty versus lefty matchup, generally the pitcher has the advantage because breaking balls, (curves and sliders) break away from the hitter, making them harder to hit, sometimes out of the hitter's reach. It also has to do with the trajectory of the pitch from the release point to the angle it crosses the plate, making it difficult depending on how a pitcher delivers and the location of and type of pitch thrown. On the other hand, lefty vs. righty or righty vs. lefty means the batter has a slight advantage, because the breaking balls will break towards the hitter, and not out of reach. In this scenario, however, one must be cautious so as not to be "sawed off" at the handle, or hitting one off the inside part of the bat, which will result in either a foul ball or easy out for the defense, though whenever one is fooled by a curve, one is pretty much fooled by a curve, regardless of whether a lefty or righty has thrown it. But generally it's easier to hit in a matchup of opposites, which is why many batters become switch hitters, or right handed throwers bat left handed exclusively. Sometimes a manager will call a left handed specialist out of the bullpen to pitch against a single tough left handed hitter, then replace the pitcher at the end of the at-bat. The pitcher has the advantage considering trajectory, and also because left handed hitters have considerably fewer at bats against other left handers, being not nearly as common as right handers, meaning they aren't quite as well practiced against them.

Why are lefties better pitchers?

Left handers are not more athletically inclined than right-handed people. If that were true we would have more than the half-dozen left handed quarterbacks in the NFL.

Because there are so many more right-handed pitchers there are more left-handed hitters (including switch-hitters) than would normally occur based on population statistics. This large number of left-handed hitters causes teams to search very hard for adequate left-handed pitchers to counteract the batters.

Notice how many left-handed pitchers are given chance after chance with multiple teams. Look at Jamie Walker, the new left-handed relief specialist of the Baltimore Orioles. He was given a $12 Million contract for the next three years. Statistically he was nothing special, but he throws with his left hand so his services are desired.

200+ game winner Kenny Rogers has said several times that earlier in his career the only reason he stayed in the majors was because he is left-handed. If he threw with his right hand he would have been back on his fathers strawberry farm many, many years ago.
