5/23 Tony takes off


If making the best of a bad roster is all Sveum can do, wouldn’t we be better off with Campana as the leadoff man followed by Barney who can handle the bat and regularly hit to the opposite field? This would allow DeJesus’s “decent” bat to be dropped in the line up to #5 offering a little more protection for LaHair than Soriano?
Just a thought since we are bound to see a lineup shuffle sooner or later. And yes, I do realize Soriano has been hitting much better in May than in April but I think DeJesus puts the ball in play on a more reugular basis. Pithcers will easily take their chances striking out a flailing Soriano anytime, anywhere….

Campana is pretty much the best thing that has happened to the Cubs this season.
Build the team around him at leadoff, Castro, LaHair, Rizzo and Cardenas. Keep Mather and start him at 3rd base and have Ian Stewart be the utility guy.
