Travis Hafner activated by the Yankees, is still alive

I just read that Travis Hafner was activated by the Yankees and I legitimately thought “wait, Travis Hafner still plays?” The stuff where he did moderately well for the Yankees for the first part of the season seemed like two years ago and I swore I remember an interview with him from this summer in which he talked about how he’s all about fishing and stuff now.

But he’s back. After missing action since July with a bum rotator cuff.  For the year he’s at .205/.300/.384, which probably means you shouldn’t blink while he plays out the string in New York, because this is probably the last we’ll see of him.

    Group retirement party!

      Jeter should join the party if he does not want to feel left out. Not much fun in being the Core One.

        You mean last man standing.

        Posada is long gone. Andy and Mo are retiring on Sunday. It is time for Jeter to ride off into the sunset with the rest of the Core Four.

    It’s sad to see a HOF’er career end like this. See you in Cooperstown, Travis.

      You guys carpooling?

    Although, if he starts eating teammates in the dugout, we might have something entirely different.

    • historiophiliac - Sep 25, 2013 at 2:00 PM

      Oh, c’mon. He’s no A-Rod.

    Can anyone on the Yankees drive at night anymore?

    “I’m not dead yet!”

    I guess they want to watch him strikeout some more. They should tell him to stay home, he’s not needed. It’s over for him in NY.
