Cubs Issues

Two issues I have with the Cubs.

1. Soriano's spot in the lineup

2. Closer

Let me start by saying, I do not know 2% of what Piniella knows about baseball, but I have some doubts with the current setup. Where does Soriano bat in the order? He really has no best place to hit. I think Fukudome is a prototypical 2nd hitter. However, do you give up his high RISP average? Sorioano needs to grow up and realize he is not the best leadoff hitter for this team. Reed Johnson or Theriot are both much better fits. I prefer Johnson because I like Theriot down in the order and Johnson is more patient. My thought is that Soriano should hit sixth. Derosa can hit second because he is a good contact hitter. Soriano's power numbers would likely go up and his strikeouts would not be as damaging.

Another blown save by Wood. When does Marmol move in? He is definitely one of the best relievers in the game, maybe the best with Zumaya now a religious DL visitor. I realize I said Wood at the beginning of the season, so now I am contradicting myself. Wood is simply too wild to be a dominant closer. He constantly walks and beans leadoff batters.

If we are to have any chance to break the drought, some issues need to be fixed. We probably need to add one more good arm to the bullpen.
