I don't think the problem is 'to-the-right' as much as 'on-the-right-margin'. Lots of tests show keeping values closer to their labels speeds comprehension; with a left-aligned label, and right-aligned value, and varying whitespace width between, interpreting the numbers is slightly slowed. (For example, in the redesign, the number of 'Following' is actually closer to the label for 'Followers'.)
