I really don't remember where I heard his nickname before, but I know I have heard it used in play by play during a game last year

Well his name is pronounced "terry-o", doesn't really fit w chariot but whatever.

The Cubs got burned by a rookie middle infielder in Cedeno last year and really wanted a proven MLB player at basically every position. Murton is the least proven starter and as you know they got Floyd in case Murton flops in his sophomore year.

Theriot will get his starts but unless there is an injury, he won't be an everyday guy this year IMO.

As for his #'s last year, truth is he faced a lot of crappy pitchers as teams made a habit of plugging in weak SP when possible against the Cubs once August came around instead of wasting a top guy's outing.

As for Derosa, I'm leery too, but as I understand it, he altered his swing coming into last year and that may explain the jump in #'s.

Having a good game today. 3-4, 2 RBI, 2 SB.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

LMAO Why would his nickname be "chariot" if it doesn't rhyme?

With Aramis and Derosa hurting now, Theriot us getting a chance to prove himself. Another nice hitting day (3/4) and has 8 hits in his past 12 AB's!!!

Could he stick in the lineup now?

Exactly. But even more, even if it did rhyme, what the hell kind of nickname is "chariot"?

So now, after Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Reds, manager Lou Piniella is talking about shaking things up in hopes of creating some of those crooked numbers he so loves.

"We'll make some changes if we have to," Piniella said. "Put some different people in there and let them play."

The offense Sunday came mainly from Ryan Theriot, who collected three of the Cubs' four hits and has guaranteed himself more playing time after going 8-for-12 in the series while filling in at third base for injured Aramis Ramirez.

"I'm going to play people who are getting the job done, and he's swinging the bat well," Piniella said. "We've got to find a place to put him. The kid deserves to play."


But that will not be easy, especially now that team home run leader Mark DeRosa (two) has returned to the lineup after being out because of back spasms.

Theriot has played the outfield and could be used there, but that wouldn't bring an end to the home run drought for which Cliff Floyd, Alfonso Soriano and Jacque Jones are primarily responsible.
