Actually, his average was only below .250 for a strech 10 games, and he batted .299 in April. He has gotten more rbi's lately because Frank Thomas and Carlos Lee have been hitting better in front of him, not really because he is hitting better. From game to game he may be streaky, he does not put together long game hitting streaks. But his monthly averages are not inconsistent, with an off month here and there. I think he has been consistent this year, check out the stats.
