    well I would not write him off yet. of course he is not as good as his first 2 months were but he did actually hit well in the minors for years and maybe just has a tough time because the pitchers adjust to him.

    I don't know if he will become an everyday player but I could see him become a consistenst 110-120 OPS+ player if he adjusts.

    To this day I don't understand how the greatest hitting catcher ever could be be unheralded coming out of high school and college? I find it almost impossible to believe that Piazza didn't show at least some promise in high school and especially college. Didn't Ted Williams coach Piazza for a short time and say that he thought Pizza could hit 25 HR a year in the majors?

    Batting .191/.272/.303 over his last 56 games since June 6 and .204/.278/.329 in 77 games since this post was started. Only 7 HR and 16 RBI in almost four months, with 83 strikeouts, and he's become a role player, mostly coming off the bench to pinch-hit.

    Question answered.

    He's actually not hitting as bad as that for the last 10 to 15 games. He had a really cold stretch in May and got hot again at the end of May and beginning of June.

    .235/.299/.388 over his last 29 games. He's come back to earth, not surprisingly.

    LaHair is going to seriously fall back to earth the rest of the season. He's gone 1 for 10 in his last 2 games and has seen his line tumble to .354/.447/.698. He's lost 100 points of OPS in just two games. The guy knows how to take a walk but he strikes out a ton. He's averaging more than a strikeout every 3 at bats, which is really high. What's saving him is his amazingly high BABIP which is .473 overall and .523 against righties. That isn't going to continue.

    I'd say a great line for LaHair from here to the end of the season would be .290/.390/.530. I also think that it could get a whole lot worse than that.

    LaHair couldn't hit lefties for most of his career. Still can't really and for the most part his bat against righties was never really good enough to justify being a major league first baseman until very recently. He wasn't very good in the outfield defensively either. So that limits your options. He had the misfortune of coming up when the Mariners had Ichiro and Ibanez at the corners and Richie Sexson at first. In 2008 LaHair got called up in July at the age of 25 and started in 39 of the last 66 games of that season. He faced mostly righties and didn't hit all that well. After that he was kind of written off.
