I feel that way too, but it's not always as it seems. Even those guys slump. Hatteberg right now is in a 4-18 slump (mini though). He went 5 for 23 in his last 8 games of May. Also had a 4-26 slump in the beginning of May. Also started the season 3 for 22. This is all while not slugging too high (.435, not bad though).
I like our hitters, but they slump, and it is VERY contagious.
