But you do in the playoffs when you are trying to win the whole thing.

No, not at all. The data doesn't support platooning Harper. What the data DOES support is Harper struggles the firsttime he sees a pitcher in any given game.

First at bat against the starter. .241/.310/.354

First at bat against any reliever. .186/.271/.319
