Neyer on the Pronk

Here's an excerpt today's chat with Rob Neyer [ESPN Insider membership required]:


Brad (Columbus, OH): True or false: Travis Hafner is the best hitter in baseball right now.

Neyer: Travis Hafner is the best hitter in baseball every season. He is to hitting what Johan Santana is to pitching. ... But nobody's going to vote for him [for MVP], which is why I haven't been mentioning him as a serious candidate. ...

Mike (St. Louis): Travis Hafner is the best hitter in baseball every season???? I think Albert Pujols might disagree with you.

Neyer: If Pujols played in a real league he'd be lucky to bat .260 with 20 home runs.

I think Neyer is exaggerating the point with regard to Pujols, but it's still some pretty strong, confident words from someone with no rooting interest in or special knowledge of the Indians.
