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.
That ^ seems right on the money.
He's a young guy (25) and his numbers for the year will be fine overall, but he's probably not going to produce like he did in the first half. He'll probably do better in that line-up than he would in other line-ups, but you have to remember how young that line-up is -- Hart (25), Hardy (25), Braun (23), Fielder (23!) -- they are all probably going to struggle at times.
At the ASB, Hardy's owner was trying to sell him hard... I wasn't buying. He should have sold him a month earlier.
