Two years into the Cespedes Experiment, can I safely cut the cord?

This is Year Two, with slightly less lofty expectations of Cespedes. 2014 has begun much like 2013. Several days of "o-fers"; followed by The Benching of Disgust; which is invariably the one day that he goes nuts, numbers-wise. Which pushes him back into my lineup, for several additional days of pent-up futility.

I'm from the "numbers don't lie" camp. And, the trend being downard. Pitchers knowing how to pitch him; and Yoenis failing to grow as a hitter.

So... Can I finally drop him, without fear of him suddenly turning into a .300/.350/.575 stud? There are plenty of available .250/.300/.440 options, with greater consistency.

There's likely a Cespedes thread out here somewhere. If so, my apologies!

We are 6 games in and he has hit safely in 4 of them.
