The west is much worse for a hitter because every park but Texas is an extreme pitchers park.(one reason why rangers hitters home road splits will always look worse than normal, yes tbia is a hitters park but it's also that the other 3 parks are among the 10 best pitchers parks in baseball) given the unbalanced schedule, you don't want to spend over 100 games playing in Seattle, Anaheim and Oakland.
