I read somewhere a while back that said there was a 10% chance of him reinjuring his shoulder.

Travis Hafner? At least with Sexson and Derrek Lee you have a proven track record. With Hafner you have one year. Lee and Sexson are easily two tiers above Hafner in perceived value.

I'm with quietstorm on this one - if the M's signed 'em, they'll suck. :-/

From what I've seen, Hafner goes near Sexson and Lee. Usually after them, but not that far after them. 1 or 2 rounds at the most.

as i've mentioned before in more detail, i know the injury, i knwo the surgery, and i have him as my #3 1B. I typically wouldn't let him slide past the 5th, but i'd take him in the early 4th if i knew someone else was angling for him.

I thought doctors were saying his injury was quite rare or odd, and they'd never seen one quite like it. I think I recall right because I owned him and that was part of my downfall :~(

hhmmm... A guy that comes off of a season ending injury, who has never had a 100 run season, never has hit above .279 (.273 career) and moved to a pitchers park and will face all new pitchers in a new league and you have him #3????????? more power to ya, I don't even have him in my top 10

This is why I am so competitive every year. To me, Hafner is a lock to be the next big 1B. All he needs to do is get a little better against lefties.

I would much prefer him over Lee and/or Sexson. Sexson is not a good gamble. Any time you pop your shoulder from a check swing is more risk that you should reasonably assume. Lee is a picture of consistency. I would not even think about taking Sexson near where I would take Lee/Hafner.

I agree, I like Hafner this year and for the coming years. I'd much rather have Hafner than Sexson!
