The people who wrote the bio's on MLB's top 20 Cubs prospects made a great typo.

"Rizzo's big league debut in 2011 may not have gone very well, but that didn't mean his left-handed bat wasn't still in high demand. Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer, who helped draft Rizzo in Boston and then traded for him while the GM in San Diego, acquired him in Chicago during the offseason. A solid defender at first, it's Rizzo's power bat (51 homers and 200-plus RBIs over the past two seasons in the Minors) that is his calling card. Look for him to make some adjustments and be ready for the big leagues in 2012 after starting the year in Triple-A Bryan LaHair."

Rizzo was the Triple-A Bryan LaHair back when Bryan LaHair was the Triple-A Bryan LaHair.

Micah Hoffpauir is the Japanese Bryan LaHair and Fights Ham better than either of them.

Tuffy Rhodes is the black Micah Hoffpauir and his name is cooler than everyone's but Rock Shoulders.

The only way Tuffy Rhodes could be cooler if he was related to the Amahicuhn Dweem Dusty Rhodes

Most unfortunate name in baseball?
