Bryan LaHair — Cubs Dark Horse Option at 1st Base? – Wrigley Field 11/26/10

Posted on 26 November 2010 by Lou

Could Bryan LaHair be the Cubs dark horse option to take over the starting 1st baseman role for the 2011 MLB schedule?  LaHair racked up some pretty sweet numbers at Triple-A during the 2010 campaign.  He hit .308 with 25 home runs and 81 RBI’s. He also had 30 doubles and he is a left-handed hitter.  At 28 years of age, he has bounced around a little bit, but was the Mariners 39th round pick back in the 2002 First-Year Player Draft.  He signed with the Cubs in December 2009 and just signed another minor league contract to stay with the Cubs through 2011.  The Cubs expect LaHair to get plenty of playing time at 1st base this spring and if he continues to rake like he did last year, he could end up on the Cubs major league roster on opening day.  It would be a great story and I would love that left-handed power bat in the middle of the Cubs lineup with Starlin Castro, Tyler Colvin, Marlon Byrd and Aramis Ramirez…
