    LaHair headed to Japan

    He was one I would have liked to see in a LF platoon for the Reds.

    Talk about a flash in the pan. Lahair rode a .600 BABIP in April to an All Star appearance and then fell off the map. From May through the end of the season he hit .231/.303/.381 as a first baseman and corner outfielder.

    To me, he seemed to have a very long swing.

    In one of my fantasy leagues, just before the off-season started, I traded LaHair for a draft pick. Should I feel obligated to give him the pick back? I won't, but I'm just wondering.

    Nope... but it'd be a nice gesture to give that draft-trading-fool a bottle of saki or an egg roll.

    I think I'll just give him a ball of my hair instead.
