Well losing Soriano 2-4 weeks is a big blow now. I'm not even sure where to go with who fills in while he's out. I don't trust Pie yet, I like Murton but not sure he's the answer at the moment either. So do the Cubs make a move and maybe pick up someone off waivers like Sosa? Not sure what to think about Sammy back at Wrigley but he does have some pop in his bat that we could use.
I'm assuming in the short term Theriot will be the leadoff guy like he should have been all along, Fontenot probably plays more 2B and bats #2 and DeRosa plays some RF more now. Floyd I'm not sure can hold up long enough to play LF every day so guessing Pagan and Jones will get some time there as well.
Also, glad to see Kerry Wood back last night and he was throwing some heat! A few 94-95 MPH fastballs and some filthy breaking balls. He'll be a big boost to the pen if he can stay healthy and continue to throw that way.
