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?

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.

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?


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.

LaHawesome will hit a double en route to a cycle day. Soriano drives him with a single. Let's make it happen, Cubs.

Ok, so much for that. How about Soriano finally gets his first HR of the year?

Loved watching Ludwick play that ball off the wall like Soriano would have last year.

No offense to the Cubs bats, but it seems pretty clear that Bailey didn't have much today.

That U-verse multi-view thing is ridiculous: it shows four windows that are so small you can't see any of them. And besides, I would never trade my one large TV for four small ones.
