I agree it is ok, after a slump, but let's qualify that word real quick:
Slump: a period of time that a player performs below expectations, sometimes WELL BELOW.
In my opinion a player going 0-4, 1-5, 0-5, 1-4 is not a slump, it's a common occurence that is balanced by the 4-5, 3-4, 4-4, 3-5 run that will happen a few weeks later (or in Eric Chavez's case put 81 0-4's first, then 81 3-5's)
5 games should be enough time to qualify a "slump". All I ask is that you spare us until then, that's all
