The Yankees are reportedly very close to signing Travis Hafner to be their new left-handed hitting DH, so I plugged “Travis Hafner highlights” into Google and that video came up. The one thing I’ve always enjoyed about Pronk is that between his size — listed at 6-foot-3 and 240 lbs., but yeah right — and batting stance, he is one scary looking dude at the plate. I don’t know if there is any actual on-field value in that (scare the pitcher into making a mistake?), but it couldn’t hurt.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. All three hockey locals are in action, so talk about those three games or anything else here. Enjoy.
