All I can say is thank god....... I drafted hafner to be my fulltime 1B and gave little consideration to a backup for him.....

I've had Feliz, Cuddleyer,Klesko, Tony Clark, all floating through my roster just because Hafner has that bad.

So, what do you call the world you live in? And what color is the sky? You traded Travis Hafner and some baggage for Jim Thome? You got robbed, friend. Absolutely robbed. Thome is great, but he's clearly not himself this year and has yet to show much but a flicker of hope. Hafner is young, has an upside like few others, blows up in the second half (and we're not even there yet! ;-D) and will be a force for the rest of the season.

You feel confident in that trade? Give me a gram of what you've got man, it must be great.

Yahoo ranks him 4th for the last month (30 days) for 5x5 Roto.

What a machine. Pronk you're making me look like a fortune teller. Atta boy. Go Tribe.


He really isn't. Hafner has been touted for some time... a deaf blind mute could see the kid has it. If you didn't think Hafner would perform at or above last year's numbers, well... you just deserve to lose.

shame on fans to let this slip 3 pages back after the guy clocks 3 HR, 6RBI, 4 runs in one tidy afternoon :-D

Heres to Travis Hafner in the second half. :-D And to all of us Hafner fans that put up with our buds telling us he sucks when he struggled early on. Do it big Haf.

Amen to that! :-D

Talk about getting burned in 3 different leagues if he didn't do this.

I am sure glad I dealt for him ten days ago...A 3rd pick in a 20 team keeper league. (5 keepers/team).

Pronk is a BEAST!!!!!!!!! I traded Helton, Lane, and Mota for Abreu, Hafner, and Batista. This was at the end of April. Since Thome sucks, Hafner has been a savior. I am so glad that other guy thinks Hafner sucks, he told me he sucks yesterday. This is what I've been talking about. 6-10 4 runs, 3 HR's and 6 RBI's. 8-o 8-o

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 4 favorite words to share with your pals whose asses you are kicking in your fantasy league because you picked a guy like Hafner and refused to drop him when he was struggling...

I TOLD YOU SO
