Chris Carter still impossible to trust
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chris Carter has homered six times in his last eight games to make him the sixth-best hitter in Head-to-Head leagues and the fifth-best in Rotisserie during that stretch, which is great.

Now who wants to bet on him doing it again in his next eight?

We've seen this before from him -- too many times before -- so we know what comes next: a two-week stretch when he collects just three hits, striking out every other at-bat. How do you think his batting average got to be .223 last season? How do you think it got to be .205 this season? He has five more singles than home runs, for crying out loud.

And that's the catch with him: He can hit you bunches of home runs, sure, but because he does absolutely nothing in between, he's inevitably sitting for you when he hits those home runs.

Maybe he won't cool off this week. Maybe the requisite slump won't come until the last week of July or the first week of August. But rest assured, it'll come, so unless you're willing to ride it out with him, you might as well not even bother with him. I don't know about you, but I'd have to be pretty desperate for power to take that hit in batting average.
