Don't know if he's always sitting against lefties now.

Thanks for the update. Hafner sitting against lefties isn't really a big deal:

As you can see he is absolutely abysmal against them. If owners have any sort of backup 1b option on their teams that is who they should be going with regardless of whether or not Hafner sits or plays against a lefty.

Yeah, I know he's miserable against them. I just wanted to share the info in case anyone was starting him.

He'll never improve vs. lefties unless Wedge lets him play against lefties, though (at least SOME). I completely disagree with what he's doing. You have to sacrifice some Ws now in order to have a better player later on. At this pace, with minimal major league experience vs. left-handed batting, he's going to turn into a platoon player for now and the future.

Hafner should play against lefties. Its not as if the Tribe has a stud right handed bat to plug in for Hafner. Let Hafner learn, he can't hit much worse than Jose Hernandez and Ryan Ludwick. I thin wedgie has received one too many atomic wedgies in his life and it is affecting his decision making. Wedgie needs to get canned, if for no other reason than I get tired of seeeing him playing with his mustache.

Agreed, he should be playing v. them, but don't think he should on fantasy rosters until he shows he can hit them better than whomever a gm's alternative is
