10/29 Winter ball updates

Bryan LaHair was 0-for-3 Friday in Magallanes’ 3-1 loss to Aragua in Venezuelan Winter League play. LaHair was batting .286 with six homers and nine RBIs. Here are some updates on other Cubs playing in winter leagues:

* Steve Clevenger was batting .211 in eight games in the Dominican.
* Marwin Gonzalez was hitting .314 in 12 games with Caribes in Venezuela.
* John Gaub has given up two runs in his last four outings, and did not allow a run or hit on Friday against Licey in the Dominican. He has four strikeouts over 2 2/3 innings.
* Scott Maine has a 3.86 ERA in four games in the Dominican, pitching for Estrellas. He has struck out three over 2 1/3 innings.
* Blake Parker has not given up a hit or run in 9 1/3 innings over nine games in relief for Hermosillo in Mexico. He has struck out 11 and walked two.

Do they have LaHair pitching yet? Just in case Pena is signed to clog first base next season? WAIT A MINUTE….HENDRY IS GONE!! Theo may actually consider NOT signing “Saint Pena” and his anemic ba with RISP creating something which Hendry/Quade were not familiar with….OPPORTUNITY for promising rookies.

If Theo bases his decisions on ba with RISP, I will be very depressed.
