well that explains it. kind of odd bc you lose out on ortiz, hafner, thome, big hurt...all very good guys.

anyone know how many road games BOS and Clev have during interleague and if hafner and ortiz will be playing 1B during them

Well, my league's trading deadline is on 7/12, so I should know by then...I just hope I don't sustain more injuries and keeping them turns into a real dilemna.

Maybe if things turn out the way I hope, I'll have to choose 2 between Pujols, Papi, and Hafner on a weekly basis. Of course, I'll try to make a trade before that happens.

I'm in a similar league (no util.), except we need 5 games. Ortiz already had 1B from last year, Hafner doesn't. I own him and need him to get to 5 games before I can use him.

By my count, the indians play 9 games in a national league stadium this year. I'm thinking by Mid/late June Hafner gets 1B eligibility. I can see him playing maybe 2 more games as a warmup at 1st before IL play. I do own him though (and can't use him) so I'm bias.

If I were you, I wouldn't drop either. These guys are monsters esp. in a 16 team league. Hold on and wait. If they don't have 1B after IL play, then you can drop them.

Imagine the market for them though

Well, Frank Thomas and Thome are not owned...I really doubt Thome would get more then a couple games at 1B, what are Thomas' chances?

Looks like Hafner is getting his second start at 1st today. That alone makes today a good day.

I don't see Ortiz getting 7 starts all year or at least I don't see him getting them early enough to be worth stashing on your bench.

These guys are pretty close to being equal in value, so there's no sense using two spots and hurting your team waiting to use them both. You already have Pujols, so you only would be able to use one of them anyway.

There's a good change neither of them gets 7 starts all year at 1B. I'd drop at least one right away.

I think Hafner's position eligibility page in Yahoo (under "Players") shows a "4" for games started at 1B going into today.

No, Yahoo shows how many games remaining until the player is eligible. You need 5, he has one, so it shows 4.

I'd seriously disagree with that. Hafner now has 2 starts at 1B before their first InterLeague game. By 6/24, each team will have played 9 away games in interleague. At this pace, Hafner will have 11 or more starts, and Ortiz 9, by then.

If you hold on to both, you'll get a sick new 1B AND be able to trade for a top SP, with a week still to go in June.

CLE plays @ CIN June 8th a 3 game series,
and then June 12th @FLA another 3 game series

By then Pronk will get 1B eligibility
