A visual analysis of Bryan LaHair’s swing.
Yes. Cubs first baseman Bryan LaHair will sustain his success. The Cubs have indeed caught lightning in a bottle.
LaHair is leading the MLB with a .510 BABIP and is third behind Matt Kemp and Josh Hamilton with a 36.4% HR/FB ratio. Fans of Chicago’s nor...

AROUND THE WEB
Some Cubs fans entered the season with relatively high expectations for Bryan LaHair. Others weren't optimistic at all. I was somewhere in between. I was fairly certain LaHair's numbers were so damn good at AAA that it indicated he should probably be about a league average ballplayer at the MLB level. To this point we've [...]
Yasiel Balaguert singled, doubled, and walked, drove-in three runs, and scored another, and Xavier Batista drilled a two-run double, walked twice, scored a run, and notched another outfield assist (he now has five in 17 EXST games), leading the Cubs a 9-4 victory over the Giants in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Indian School Park Field #4 in Scottsdale...
Asking someone for their phone number can take courage, and rejection is never easy. Most people also don't need to worry about getting rejected too publicly, either, althought one's friend's might giggle when watching the rejection from across the room. One Chicago Cubs fan was unlucky with his advances towards a ball girl at the Chicago Cubs game, according to some...
Well, well, well. This team ain’t so awful. In fact, they are not half-bad. Heck, they are even somewhat mediocre and, while we’re at it, they can be downright entertaining.
After a grotesque and gut-wrenching 3-11 start, the Cubs have won 10 of 17 and head to Milwaukee to face a surprisingly struggling Brew Crew. So, with the impending series in Milwaukee, I just have...
Iowa Offense Eruption! The boys in Iowa decided to explode all of the face of Fresno by jacking out 13 runs. Rizzo hit two long hard ones out and Vitters showed off with a dong of his own. Brett Jackson took two easy bases on balls before smacking the ball around for a triple. All [...]
Say what you want about the Chicago Cubs (and God knows I've said my fair share), but inviting people up to the pressbox to sing out "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" is one of baseball's best traditions.With or without a holographic Harry Caray .Seriously though, how awesome is this picture of WWE Champ, Chicago native (and Steve Bartman hater) CM Punk doing the...

CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Maholm outpitched Tim Hudson to win his fourth straight start, Bryan LaHair hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 1-0 Wednesday.
Maholm (4-2) allowed three hits in seven innings and combined with James Russell and Rafael Dolis on a four-hitter.
Maholm walked three and struck out three as Chicago took two of...
I liked the Brewers chances of winning the NL Central this year, even without Fielder, given the loss of Pujols and Carpenters injuries and my general distrust of the Reds pitching staff. They've had some awful luck so far though, and it looks like it's not going to happen. They've lost three of their key [...]
