Speed never slumps?

I saw this today on Baseball Prospectus:

Small sample, but Willy Taveras has put up some unbelievable numbers over the past calendar month or so. In 97 plate appearances from May 15 to June 18, he’s hitting .085/.113/.096, with three walks and 20 strikeouts. Taveras also has been thrown out in two of five stolen base attempts during that span.

Here’s my question: If speed never slumps, then what is the word for this?

I would say it is time to put Dickerson in the lead off spot but I have Willie T on my fantasy team. I need him to turn it around.

CD is in there tonight for Willie. Good move for the Reds (and the Legends),
