Is he finally coming through? Hes been swinging a good bat the last couple of days. But Im in a bind because I have Thome and Hafner. Hafner has continued to play well. And I dont want to sit Thome. Do you guys think Hafner's production will decrease in the second half, and Palmiero will finally start heating up?

I have little faith in Palmiero, his skills finally seem on the decline.

I could be wrong though.

Hafner is approaching 300 ABs and for me that's the point when someone stops being a fluke and has to be considered. I think Palmeiro will have a better 2nd half than his 1st half average-wise but Hafner will beat him out in every category except HRs IMO.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Haffner will strike out more than Raffy as well. In my league, K-BB matters.

i've played him every week this season because i've been forced to (injuries), and as you know he's been less than impressive. the old man's starting to swing the bat like an old man, and i can't see that turning around. he's been great, but IMO, it's all downhill from here.

What you've seen so far this season by Raffy is as good as it's going to get.

Hafner is going to remain more valuable all season in standard 5 x 5 leagues.
