no way you can sell high - most people are just now picking him up and taking a chance he returns to form - not sure how you can sell high on that to any reasonable manager who follows baseball at all - no one is convinced just yet


If any fantasy manager knows anything about baseball, they will know NOT to trade for Hafner, however, the reality is that there are many Cleveland Indian homers out there as well as people who fall for hypes, and if you're smart, you will know to get something in return for a washed up player like Hafner...Try a last place team and I guarantee he or she will fall for it eventually...

Gotta know how to play the game!

I'd take his advice. If there's anyone in this world that knows about the mentality of homers and bandwagon(ers?), it's a BoSox fan.

My only other options are DLee and Helton.


Votto is my 1B, and Konerko is my UTIL. Mr. Konerko, meet the bench.


LOL! I hope you're in my league...thanks for sitting Konerko (HR vs Detroit already-April 13)... ;-D

Jeez...its not that funny. I really dont think 1 HR and 3 RBI will be the deciding factor on where he finishes in his baseball league. And who says Hafner doesnt do something similar tonight?

I hope you are in his baseball league too, for his sake.

Then he became nothing
