Travis Hafner should be an all-star

Hafner is currently 2d in the American League in OPS (on-base pct + slugging pct) which is the best measure of a hitter's effectiveness. While he is currently on a hot streak with 3 homers yesterday, it should be noted that he finished the 2004 season ranked 2d in the AL in OPS. For the last year and a half he has been as good as any hitter in the league. If he played in Boston or New York, he'd be an all-star. But he plays in Cleveland.
