Exactly. He's talking about Jason Kipnis being nearly droppable on May 1st and he was a top 25 hitter by May 17th. That kind of hot streak.

I have had success ID'ing certain players as being streaky and sitting them after some cold spells and putting them back in after HR games with Jay Bruce, Justin Upton and Dan Uggla, for example. They tend to put together some extended cold and hot streaks over the course of a season.

I don't think there is any great science to this, though, and if you are going to gamble on this (it is gambling) you have to be prepared to eat a poor performance or to have your slugger on the bench for a great night.
