I think he was playing way over his head earlier in the season, and if you're waiting for him to return to that form you're going to have a long wait.

He did an interview at the all-star game where he pretty much said he was _not_ a HR hitter, and that earlier in the season he was just getting a ton of fastballs right down the middle. I would expect him to be better than he has, but his minor league numbers, and his own words seem to indicate that the HR output was a thing of the past.

I think Hardy is just settling into being the player he was expected to be, and most people saw it coming so I wouldn't say he's a major disappointment or anything. I'd say be grateful he had the hot streak and if you didn't sell high on him you missed your opportunity. I don't think he's un-rosterable or anything but I wouldn't be counting on him as your #1 SS. And he could get another little streak going, you never know.

i don't care about the HRs but 0.217 in that slot and in that lineup is simply pathetic

Look on the bright side. At least he's nowhere near as bad as Pat Burrell in May (.179) and June (.129).

Rollo, do you even like fantasy baseball? Every post I see is about how bad your players are sucking. B-)

let's not let this thread turn into another "Uggla", haha.

Seriously folks, it's called a slump. Even good players have them.
