TDog already answered this in full. Ever since Wise has been here, he's always had some hot streaks. When he gets them, you have to ride it out. Of course, he doesn't do it on a consistent basis, hence it's why he never can be a full time starter. But, he is fine as a bench player/fill-in role.

But, I agree, it's a problem if he's the second best hitter on the team. It doesn't speak well for the rest of it...

De Aza just isn't that good. He's what some people like to call a "AAAA" player who had a nice little run of success for us for about a year or a year and a half.

He was another part of KW's "let's try to compete with spare parts" teams of recent years. Sometimes these kind of pick ups turn out to be successes....but even when they are successes, it is often short-lived and that player eventually comes back down to earth.
