He got his annual steal today, so maybe he`s ready to get down to business. ;-7

In my opinion you'd have to be in a pretty shallow league to have to drop him.


Even then - he may not put up numbers that he has in the past but can we seriously stop talking about dropping a guy who was considered one of the top 5 sluggers prior to beggining the season??

I have him on my bench - but his recent numbers have made me consider putting him in. I'm giving him one more week.

I would say Hafner was considered one of the top 5 sluggres prior to LAST season.

His homers dropped dramatically from 2006 42 homers to 2007 24 homers. His batting average, on base percentage, and slugging dropped pretty dramatically as well.

That said I think you would be crazy to even consider dropping him unless you're in a super shallow league (6 to 8 teams).

His numbers are clearly in decline. Last year was the first time in 4 years his on base percentage dropped below .400. .400 obp of course is pretty amazing, but my point is you can't really call him a top 5 slugger anymore.

He sure is a mystery -- all signs point to the dark side though. He killed me last year --- I have never missed making playoffs in my life (im 58) but thanks to him I did last year. I had 12th pick cause I won whole thing year before so I took him 12th. Bad move. This year I said im staying away from him but lo and behold --there he is in bottom of 6th rd -- couldnt resist. Big mistake -- I must be getting old!And only reason hes showing some signs of life this week is cause I finally benshed him.

He finally got a (pinch hit) homer tonight, but it wasnt much cause for hope or celebration. I only got a quick replay look---It seemed barely fair in rightfield of Great American Ball Park. I think it would have been an out in a lot of other places.

This guy is really a mystery to me. I can't help but draft him every year, he seems like a team player and still looks like a horse. I have a hard time believing he was ever a roid guy. It seems to me that it is a mechanics/mental thing with him. I will let him ride the pine for a while and see what happens.

Is it bad that Peralta has TWICE as many HR's (8) than Hafner at this point? 8-o

I ended up trading him and Stephen Drew for Oswalt. I couldn't deal with Haefner anymore and I was so high on him at the begining of the season.
