7/8 Red hot Soriano

Alfonso Soriano is on a roll. He led off the sixth with his 13th home run on Monday against the White Sox in an 8-2 Cubs win, marking the first time since 2006 he has homered and swiped two bases in one game. He’s batting .381 in his last 10 games.

“It’s been the ‘Sori’ show the last 10 days or so,” Dale Sveum said. “We’re playing real well without [Starlin] Castro and [Anthony] Rizzo doing a whole lot. Hopefully, they can get going real quick.”

Soriano, who matched his career high by scoring four runs in a game for the first time since Sept. 6, 2008, has been the subject of trade rumors. American League teams looking for a DH might be interested.

“Every year, it’s like less pressure,” Soriano said. “I don’t try to think about those trade rumors. Every year it’s something new. If it happens, it happens, and if not, I enjoy playing the game.

“My mind right now is to play one day at a time here and see what happens,” he said.

Rizzo and Castro aren’t the only ones not hitting. What about Barney? Why can’t the hitting coach figure out what he needs to change? He’s coming up in too many important situations where it could be a game changer.

honestly i keep saying this and it hasn’t been fixed yet but Barney is NOT an everyday ML player… he would be a great asset coming off the bench for better defense at the end of the game but other than that he is USELESS… he can’t field the whole field and the defense he provides (while it is great defense) isn’t enough to offset the loss we get by putting his bat in the everyday lineup. Its plain and simple… bash if you like because of the barney fan club on here but its the truth if you sit down and look at his ABs and STATS…….

also barney has 2 errors in what 2 or 3 days??

O YOU MEAN OUR #4 HITTER LEADS OUR TEAM IN HOMERS!!! HMMM WHAT A NOVEL IDEA!! WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT FISH?? MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR NAME TO JOEYDACROWEATER….. LOL!!!!!

WOW, Soriano is on fire! He is having an awesome TEN DAYS and is in line for a great PARTIAL season….AGAIN. If I’m not mistaken he now leads one of the worst teams in baseball in homeruns, good thing he has little competition on the roster…give him a gold star! If he is STILL hanging around this team like an aging albatross next season, he may actually contribute in April and May? Not likely so let’s hope his JULY hot streak peaks the interest of some desperate GM’s. Soriano is the poster child for the phrase GET’IM WHILE HE’S HOT.
Oooooh…I see a nice plate Lasagna for lunch today!

you should be full from all the crow you have ate…

When we are wounded we can count on Petrey to rub salt in with vigor and relish. We shall overcome. Looking forward to tonight’s game.

Wounded? Hell White…I’m tickled to death that HWSRN to this day is STILL obsessed with me that he needs to comment such drivel. No better feeling than when GOOD people remain a thorn in the side of vile, evil doers EVERYWHERE! We shall always overcome White especially when overcoming someone as insignificant as HWSRN. Still chuckling…made my day…

once again pot calling the kettle black… good job!
