Hafner Projections??

He's a stud of a player, he's ripped up the minors and now he's primed to do it in the majors. I'm thinking he'll hit .305, 35 homers 117 rbis. He'll have that many rbis simply because he's hitting 3rd in a stacked cleveland offense with guys who get on base (belliard, crisp).

Anyone think he'll pick up lefties this year, Chavez style?

With an Average ;-D

i just drafted him two days ago, but i do not like this latest news...

:-t


from cbssportsline:

DH Hafner locked in as No. 3 hitter

Travis Hafner, DH CLE

News: Travis Hafner will reportedly bat in front of instead of behind Victor Martinez this season, an Ohio newspaper reported Monday. If Juan Gonzalez makes the team, it means Martinez will hit fifth -- otherwise the catcher will bat cleanup like last season.

Analysis: Hafner's RBI totals will take a subtle hit with this news, but he should remain one of the most productive DH's in baseball. Consider him and outstanding middle-round option after the biggest names are off the board on Draft Day.

Doesnt concern me one bit. Thanks to the DH he should still get his RBI batting in the 3rd spot

Yeah I don't see a huge difference between 3rd and 4th there. Add a few runs take a few rbi MAYBE.

Are you kidding me? Hafner in front of Victor Martinez is great news. At some point during the year, pitchers aren't going to want to face Martinez. Which will mean better pitches for Hafner.
