welp, as a hafner owner in a bunch of leagues, i'm midlly concerned that he's sitting at around .260/0/6 with 8 runs for the season. last year he had a .303/4/14 campaign in april, then a .314/3/23 in may, .308/2/12 in june, then he started hitting 7-8 HRs per month and got to about .300/28/109 to end the year.
thus far tho, with another 0-4 tonight, hafner has been murder to those of us who hda him as an offensive cog at 1B. i didnt expect him to pull out a .330/40/130 season, but i figured he'd be a dang solid bat to have at 1B and essentially give me good enough production there to not worry about it.
but i'm getting worried that he has a nagging injury or something... cuz last sept he missed games near the end, and after his red hot july and august, he was something like .300/4/11 in september before missign most of the last week or two with some injury.
does anyone here in cleveland or with a MLB season ticket TV thingy get a chance to watch him daily and see whats wrong? is this merely just a big prolonged slump that he'll bust out of akin to mark teixeira last year, or is this a sign that the so-called pronk might have been overrated coming out of last year, or he's just having a horrible "sophpmore slump" (even tho its not his 2nd year, its his 2nd year as the man in a lineup)
the only somewhat comforting stat is thus far he's got 6 doubles, and if you take that and do a little ratio math, he's on pace for about 40 doubles, and he had 41 last year.
so am i just paranoid and impatient, or am i on to something here?
