He gets extremely hot for 2-3 weeks, then goes back into his normal 2 hits in 40 ab weeks.

At the end of each year somehow his average looks good, but it’s only from the several little hot streaks he has each year where he goes like 20 hits in 40 ab.

You can’t trust Betemit to produce on a consistent daily basis, just like LaRoche used to be for us, but again, without even the home run/extra base power LaRoche has.
