Depends on your league format and your ability to predict the future. :-?

I dropped him for Coco Crisp in one league and picked up Jeff Francouer for the third time in my other league.

I figure Corey Hart gets hot again, I can nab him before anyone else does. So, I say drop him.

I would say drop in shallow leagues. Deep leagues might want to wait a bit to see if he reclaims the leadoff spot permanently.
His June was a monster month which really showed his upside.
28 9 21 10 .336

I doubt he'll come close to that in August or September, but even 60% of it would be very nice.

He is platoonable with sufficient roster space since he has a +41 point BA differential with substantial power at home over his career. Also better against LHP but that would really limit his AB. I would say LHP + Home keep him active.

i think i'll be dropping him soon as Brett Myers and Phil Hughes come off the DL, he's been riding my bench for a few weeks now anyways...

3 for 4 tonight, with a homer, 2 RBIs and 2 runs.

I'm holding.

You guys must be in some shallow leagues to consider dropping him. Another big game tonight. He's not a must start but he belongs on a roster in almost every league.

What I'd like to know is what happened to Hart's SBs ... 16 on the season, ZERO in the past month. :-/ :-{ His success rate has been great -- caught just four times this year.

I recognize Hart's BA is languishing at .224 over the past month & OBP is down as well as well but still you'd expect a couple or a few SBs. Like a little whipped cream on a pile of BA dog poo. Any insights?
