I kind of don't want him to get it now, cuz everyone seems to devalue him for that. I got him in the 3rd round this year, and would love to get him in the 2nd or 3rd next year too.


;-D
Thanks

Travis Hafner - Designated Hitter


Travis Hafner is expected to play first base Monday against the Cardinals.
The Indians don't seem overly pleased with Ben Broussard of late, so Hafner could see quite a bit of action at first base over the next six games. "I don't know exactly how much I'll be over there, but I'm sure I'll be there some," Hafner said. Jun. 26 - 9:42 am et

Casey Blake goes down today. Looks like there is a glimmer of hope for those of us still waiting and praying on Pronk's eligibility at 1B. :-D

as per Rotoworld:

Precautionary X-rays on Casey Blake's sprained ankle were negative. He's currently considered day-to-day.
Blake was on crutches in the dugout on Sunday, and the Indians haven't ruled out a DL stint. Still, things do look better than they did last night. "We're planning further diagnostics in Cleveland when we land," trainer Lonnie Soloff said. "Based on the outcome of that and the response of treatment over the next 36 to 48 hours, we'll have a clearer idea of how long he's out." Unless the Indians call up Ryan Garko, Kelly Shoppach will be the big beneficiary of Blake's injury, as the Indians can use Victor Martinez at first.

Pronk won't be playing any 1B, so you can put this thread to rest. His elbow bothers him too much.
