Yup, seems like that's what it's become.
But the original intent of the thread was to deal with the question - do you bench studs for extended periods because they're slumping.
In my case, people like Edmonds & Giles (career 1.000 OPS players who have OPSs less than 700) are hurting me in those two categories.... I was looking for opinions on if I should keep those types of players in my linup or bench them until they break out of the slump.
...then there's the eventual question of what constitutes "breaking out of the slump"....
I think jdh
answered the question best saying that 3/5 categories (or 4/5 if you use HRs instead of SLG) gain a positive result even if the other two take a hit, although he was one of few that answered the question.
