Good thing we dumped LaPorta

Matt LaPorta's dismal month continues.

First he suffers through a terrible slump after being traded to the Indians' organization.

Next thing you know he gets attacked by China.

China manager James Lefebvre was the first man to be ejected after twice leaving the dugout to protest plays before relief pitcher Chen Kun was also given his marching orders for delivering a fast ball drilled into the helmet of Matt Laporta.

The injury doesn't appear to be severe...but LaPorta did spend the night in the hospital for observation.

Ahhh...you stay classy Jim Lefebvre. If this doesn't prove that the Chicago Cubs are Communist Sympathizers then I'm not sure what does.

The lesson again...as always...China sucks. So do the Cubs.

yeah, he won't be useful for years to come because he slumped a bit and got hit in the head today.

(though i do think it's a good trade, if the brewers hold off the cardinals.)
