Does LaHair play 1B? Just wondering if Hendry will trade or release him so he can go to another team, eventually become a free agent and THEN Hendry can overpay him and let him play 1B for the Cubs? Oh wait, I forgot to add that he would have to experience diminishing skills before he would be spotted on the Hendry radar…THEN Hendry can pay him millions. What? I know. I know….

I would love to see him and Jackson up on the major league ball club soon… as in NOW…
