Hafner and Interleague Play

Postby mocabeenow » Mon Jun 12, 2006 12:06 pm

I am only allowed to make weekly lineup changes that start today, i'm worried about the weekend series at Milwaukee. Is he gonna be pushed out of the lineup, or are they going to try him out at 1B?

any news out there?

im wondering the same thing, wedge would be foolish to sit hafner in all NL parks. my guess would be he plays 2 out of 3 games with a pinch hit in the other, but that's just my guess :-o

i got decision's to make..

what would you guys do?

Start Hafner hoping he plays.. or start Damon knowing he's going to play.. My other best options are Helton and Matt Kemp.

I only have weekly lineup changes which start today, so i need to figure out my best option.

My league is a h2h point-based league.
2 points for h, r, hr, rbi, sb
1 point for bb
-1 point for k

before the season wedge said that he would get Hafner time at 1B. He may play all 3, but i dont know for sure.

I can't imagine that they would take their best hitter out of the lineup for an entire series. And it's not like they've got Pujols at 1b. Play Pronk.

Hafner will play first base this weekend. How many games I don't know, but I would guess he'll start 2 of the 3 games at 1B. He's been taking grounders at first all year, and he played a lot at 1B in the spring. The only reason he hadn't played much 1B is the elbow problem. He had trouble making throws at 1B. Also, before the day game against Minnesota 2 weeks ago, ESPN did an interview with Pronk, and they asked him if we'll see him at first base at all this year, and he said "Definitely". ;-D

They can't afford not to have his bat in the linuep, so if he's able to play 1B he will, and everything I've seen/heard leads me to believe he will.

So I'd start him. ;-D
