Generally speaking when an entire team is cold you shouldn't worry about a single player on it. If you look at the stats on baseballprospectus the Brewers have faced pitchers with a combined OPS against of under .700. It is mostly just a case of facing a bunch of hot pitchers.

His entire ML career, early major league production when called up, and last season are indication. Aside from that, I don't know what you're looking for. The guy's underperformed for what was expected of him thus far and is still batting .283. He's stolen 4 bases with 0 CS. He only hit 1 HR in his first 100 AB last season, so there's no reason to be concerned quite yet. I think he could be in store for a big May.

He's got 137 games left to work with. I think his season totals will be fine.

fun fact: Hart had 1 HR as of June 1, 2007.

His FB are down and his GB are up.
He'll turn it around soon enough...

Yeah I hope you're right; I traded for him after he had stolen 3 bases so I didn't get the benefit of those anway. The first month of the season always plays tricks with my mind.

After trading away Josh Hamilton, I'm really leaning on a combination of Hart/Franceour/Pence/Votto to fill in two roster spots. Just based on matchups so far it hasn't been too bad, but it certainly hasn't lived up to expectations either.

I'm 100% confident that he'll turn it around. With Cameron coming back, Braun and Fielder in front of him, and Hall hitting bombs behind him, he couldn't be batting in a much better spot in the lineup (unless they strangely moved him in front of Braun or Fielder).

Just by the simple fact that he's got two solid years at .280+, with 9 homers in half a season (2006) and 24 homers in a full season (2007), I'm completely confident that he'll end up near the .285/20-25 numbers that I'm expecting. The 30 SB I'm hoping for may be a bit high, but even if he only breaks 20 he'll be worthy as a #3 OF on my team.

Beyond that, I don't see how anyone in the middle of the Brewers lineup couldn't end up with 85/85 runs and RBIs by the end of the season, even if they continue slumping.

I think he'll be fine. I don't think those leaps and bounds in power some of us had hoped for will happen this year, but he'll still be a good player and very viable OF starter in all leagues.

Definitely agree with this. I'll wait until Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun get it going before passing any judgment on Hart.

more super fun facts:
David Wright
April, 07 - 14 R, 4 2B, 0 HR, 6 RBI, 3 SB, .244 AVG, .681 OPS
Final, 07 - 113 R, 42 2B, 30 HR, 107 RBI, 34 SB, .325 AVG, .963 OPS

Moral of the story is, it is still too early. If Hart or anyone else is still doing nothing by Jul 1 then I'd start worrying.
