What is Japanese for LaBomb?

Bryan LaHair was designated for assignment today. I think we generally hoped he would have a teeny tiny bit of trade value, but maybe he didn't or maybe the Cubs thought they should do right by him and just let him go so he can pursue an opportunity elsewhere (the talks of Japan are most [...]

Chicago Cubs 50-game report card

The Cubs are 18-32 at the end of May.  30% of their season completed and they currently are tied with Minnesota for the second worst record in baseball.  In May they suffered through a 12 game losing streak that exposed all the warts on the team.  The losing streak was comprised of poor hitting, pitching, bullpen, fielding, base running, coaching and a bad call or two peppered...

Bryan LaHair’s Fantastic Start

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 [...]

Cubs were confident LaHair would be this good

It's getting deep enough into the season now to begin believing Chicago Cubs first baseman Bryan LaHair is the real thing. LaHair leads major league first basemen with eight home runs, with the latest coming Monday night in the Cubs' 5-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field.

Bryan LaHair: What to Expect from the Cubs’ Opening Day First Baseman

The Cubs are giving Bryan LaHair, 29 and a career minor leaguer, his shot as a major league regular in 2012.  The first base job is LaHair’s to lose going in to the season.  What are reasonable expectations for this minor league journeyman with only 65 major league games under his belt?
