Actually no. People called him donkey and some called him project. So they combined the two nicknames to come up with pronk.

For a DH to win it he'd have to have numbers substantially greater than that of a position player I'm afraid so if someone is close to or better than Hafner come season's end, he won't win it.

If he does well then, I could see Wedge putting VMart at DH to give his legs a rest and moving Pronk to first. This may be a high count, but I think he could get 15-20 games in at 1B this season. I realize that isn't enough to consider him a 1B, but it could help in the eyes of the voters. And if he puts up the kind of numbers he is capable of, that little incentive may be enough for him to win.
Projection for Pronk: .310/42/135/105/2
