I have had a man crush on Hague since “A” ball. He profiles as a RH ‘Lyle Overbay” (when Lyle could still hit). As Tim has pointed out a couple of times, he hits opposing pitchers like he is LH.

I am hoping he gets a Sept callup.

We could use some of that production in the burgh, oh that’s right we need four light hitting third basemen on the roster.  WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too bad that his placement is blocked by sweet swinging Lyle Overbay. Can’t beat a .229 average with no power. And the Pirates don’t need a good right handed batter anyway with Matt (will he get 1 HR this year) Diaz.
