    Piniella: Byrd will hit fifth in lineup, Soriano sixth

    "Piniella said he plans to take a look at both Kosuke Fukudome and Ryan Theriot as the team's potential leadoff hitter. From there, he seems confident in his spring training order.

    We have Derrek Lee who's a wonderful, wonderful three hitter," Piniella said. "[Aramis]Ramirez is very productive at the four spot. And we've settled in with Soriano at the six hole, and I think he's comfortable with it. We really just have the fifth hole to look at, and I've talked to the new hitting coach [Rudy Jaramillo] at length about Marlon, and he thinks he can fit in there."

    This sounds decent to me. Especially Soriano in the six spot. Definitely not a leadoff man. We've seen that proven.

    I see Derosa signed with the Giants. Did the Cubs every make a play for him?

    I don't know much about Byrd. Hope he works out.

    I know nothing about Byrd, but he's not Milton Bradley, so I like him.

    Sounds like a decent lineup. It's all subject to change after a few games anyway. It would be nice if Soriano would hit his way out of the 6-spot.

    I would still like for us to find a solid SS.
