Maybe we should think about starting Hoffpauir

I've always been a fan of D. Lee, but this is getting silly. 

 

M. Hoffpauir is proving that he deserves that job at 1st base. 

 

I know Lee usually starts off slow, and he's got the big contract and the experience to be a true leader for the Cubs.  But Hoffpauir isn't just a minor leaguer anymore.  He's proven at every level that he can play.  Most important he has the kind of power you need to get from a corner infielder on a MLB contending team. 

 

I'm sorry for Lee, but this should be a dead heat.  Hoffpauir deserves to be starting as much as Sean Marshall does. 

Hoffs Spring Numbers:    AB: 60, Hits: 17, Avg: 283, SLG: 550, RBI: 17, HR: 4

Lee's Spring Numbers:    AB: 28, Hits: 5, Avg: 179, SLG: 214, RBI: 2, HR: 0

 

Prove I'm wrong.
