Will Hafner play 1B?

Postby hookem2003 » Tue Feb 14, 2006 3:14 pm

Yahoo only has him as a DH. Anyone know if he'll qualify early in the season?

Once interleague play rolls around he should qualify.

did he play any games at 1B last year? On that topic is there a resource available that breaks down the # of games played at various positions?

Rotoworld keeps tabs during the season.

Right on Yahoo! Just check the career stats on a player page and you'll get a breakdown.

He played exactly one game at 1B last season, although I suspect that had he not missed 25 or so games with injury, he might have played 1B during all interleague road games. He is just too huge of a bat to take out of the line-up, regardless of his defensive deficiencies. So my guess is that once IL play starts, he will see a lot of 1B AB's.

My league requires that a player play 10 games at a position. Do you see Hafner doing this? I think he is available, but I want the flexibility. He's a stud, but I have a DH/1B by the name of Ortiz already. I want the 1B eligibility.

He will NOT in my opinion. Yahoo needs 5 starts or 10 appearances. He had a bad elbow that apparently prevented him from playing first in 2005. Given Ben's struggles at 1B last year, I don't buy it completely. I think he is apparently a defensive liability at 1B. Otherwise he'd play 1B even on a limited basis. Even two years ago he only had 10 games at 1B and I don't know if that was 10 starts. I think V Mart will end up at 1B before Hanfer! Could happen! Do not pick him if you are hoping for a 1B. You MAY get lucky and he'll qualify later this summer, but if there was any chance of him playing 1B more than once in a blue moon, the Tribe would have jumped on it earlier......
