Well here’s a player that has really surprised me – Micah Hoffpauir.

I thought Micah was going to be a career AA or AAA first baseman, a gap hitter with good average, a decent number of doubles but not too many homeruns.

I’m glad to see that the Cubs are giving Micah a bonafide chance to make the 25 man roster – in 2008 he hit .342 with a .934 OPS for Chicago – he had 27 homeruns and 108 RBI with both Chicago and Iowa.

Untamed Heart the movie Micah will be a definite upgrade over Daryle Ward as a bench player and he might give D Lee a few days off at first. Last year I was pleasantly surprised about Fontenot, this year Hoffpauir’s my guy.
