I once suggested that, as I hadn't seen the "bender update" in awhile, that he must be slumping. Well, a few posters jumped on me for suggesting such a thing, nitwithstanding that he had indeed been slumping.
The Bender update was started by thoses intent on proving it was a bad trade. Last year, when Branyan was hitting good, and Ben was in the minors (or hitting poorly in the majors), it was nowhere to be found. This year, whenever Ben has a good game it gets ressurected.
But that's their proogitive. We are all guilty of using the facts that state our case. THe Bender people are no different.
