Yes, true, didn't realize what a butcher he was. Still it's the NL and he's a good bat, gotta play him somewhere, and LaRoche is generally considered a good 1B, no?
I didn't figure it out until I blogged about it, don't feel bad. Saw him in person in rehab, TERRIBLE.
Yeah LaRoche isn't a bad 1B at all, but in the NL you gotta cram guys places, and that 30HR needs to be in the lineup.
