Jim Ingraham at the News-Herald had a little blurb about what he reckons ails Travis Hafner.
He sites the offer Pronk turned down saying:
According to one source, the deal Hafner turned down from the Indians was for five years and $70 million. Another source said that's a little high, that the offer was actually one year and $10 million less than that.
Does the vacuum-like sound of money being sucked from Travis's theoretical future wallet during his (at this time) mediocre season drown out the inner-batting dialog that led to his previous success? Or will Travis mash for the rest of the season and quickly make 5/70 or 4/60 look like chump change reserved for the likes of chumps and Trot Nixon? Well, maybe not Pie Man, but you get the idea.
