I picked him up a while back and he has just been producing like crazy. How long will this last? I am not complaining what so ever in fact I'm very happy on what he has been doing. Is this guys gonna be for real for the long run or just a one season wonder?

I think he's in store for a big-time 2nd half fall as are the Cards IMO. Smoke and mirrors. Though, if Carp, Mulder, and Clement all come back effectively I could change my mind. Ludwick will be like that girl you dated in high school that was okay looking and surprisingly had good time with but you just kinda end things when it goes stale. Drop Ludwick once he goes cold because it would be hard to trade him.

He is hitting .239 with a .732 OPS over the last 29 games so the fall has already started.

we wont see Carp until the end of the year at best now, no one will ever see Mulder or Clement effective ever again.

Im more worried about Waino and Welly anyway.

Yeah, the numbers would have seemed to say he'd be ok especially with a decent hitting Glaus among others around him. Guess not as you brought this up in your latest Splitsville article on Yahoo. ;-D I'm wondering if Ludwick will now tail off for pretty much of the rest of the year. I'm sure he'll still get some Hr's and RBI's but I've got a strong feeling that batting average will continue to drop.

Just dropped him in a 10 team league. In a shallow league I think it's time to move on. He's been hitting .250 for about a month now. It was a great run while it lasted though.

He'll still hit 30+ homers with like 30+ doubles, but he'll hit more around 270 than 300+.
