It's not the Indians management or Wedge choosing Hafner over Grady Sizemore, it's the Indians choosing Hafner over an injured Grady Sizemore. If you have a fantastic fielding CF who's too hurt to play the field, and you are in the midst of a bad season where you won't contend for the Central, why not move Hafner into the DH role and either rest or DL Sizemore so that he's healthy enough to play the field? Seriously, just playing an injured Grady at the DH while he's hurt is kind of like putting a band aid on a bullet wound, you aren't really treating the problem, just masking it.
