B737 with Winglets - too twitchy on Landing ?

Just seen another 737 with big winglets come off the runway, - see SouthWest Airlines thread

The winglets will make the A/C more sensitive to crosswinds especially on landing, a gust from the right will try and roll the A/C to the left with extra lift on the right wing.
Adding winglets makes the matter worse as the winglets will also try and roll the A/C to the left.

I seem to have seen a lot of these. is there any statistics that show a difference between "classic" non-winglet 737 runway excursion rate compared to winglet ones?
