4/24 Sticking with Soriano
Alfonso Soriano is in a little bit of a funk. He’s 0-for-11 in his last three games and batting .200 overall. But Cubs manager Dale Sveum isn’t ready to move the left fielder down in the order.
“I think he’s still a threat,” Sveum said. “I’m not going to move him down any time soon, that’s for sure. He’s a big threat. He’s in the five-spot and he’s got people around him who can do things. The media guide doesn’t lie. When it’s all said and done, he’ll end up with his 25 to 30 home runs and we’ll look back on this and laugh at it.”
Soriano still does not have an extra base hit this year.
