He's hit everywhere he's played. Look at his MiLB stats--he's a professional hitter, always has been. How did a team as bad as the Mariners--who have a DH spot available to them--consistently overlook LaHair?
Well, let's remember the season is still early. I have my fingers crossed that he can keep performing at 80% of this level the whole season. He could just be on an extraordinary hot streak to be followed by a massive slump once pitchers figure out and exploit his weaknesses.
LaHair's a phenomenal story. I would like to know more about how a guy like that continues to get lost/stuck/forgotten in the minor leagues. What's the deal?
Having lived in Seattle for 7 years now, I can tell you that two things were in place with LaHair:
1: They kept trying to fix first base through free agency, and they made a lot of bad moves where they felt forced to play the guy they just traded the farm for/signed to too large a contract.
2: They have about 25 Catcher/DH/CornerOF/1B prospects in their organization.
Gotcha--that makes sense.
