Why is Lahair not playing everyday? Average over 300, homerun threat, great potential, this is his chance to shine – but he is not getting the chance he deserves!

well I think part of it is his lingering back issue… he is just getting back to 100% and the staff is being cautious but I mean he has 23 ABs the most of any Cub at 1B so he is our guy… A day off here or there early is just going to keep him in top form. You gotta remember we aren’t dealing with a 22yr old prospect. Lahair is 30…

OMG. I agree with petrey10, nicely stated.
