Soriano out of leadoff slot, sounds like

Bring on the RBIs. Pete's sake he had a whole 7 in the last month despite hitting .337.

Soriano's leadoff days may be numbered
Lineup spot in flux, but slugger taking team-minded approach
By Carrie Muskat /

NEW YORK -- Don't be surprised if Alfonso Soriano is no longer No. 1 in the Cubs lineup.

Cubs manager Lou Piniella wouldn't commit on Wednesday, but he is considering moving Soriano to the second spot and inserting Ryan Theriot into the leadoff spot.

"You guys will get that answer soon," Piniella told reporters Wednesday. "When you get Derrek Lee in the lineup, you'll get the answer."

Lee has been sidelined with neck spasms, and Soriano has subbed in the third spot in the last two games. Asked if he was tempted to have a lineup of Theriot, Soriano, Lee and Aramis Ramirez, in that order, Piniella smiled.

"'Tempting' is a good word," he said.

Soriano said it didn't matter where he hit.

"I enjoy the game, batting first, batting third," Soriano said. "If I'm in the lineup, I enjoy the game. I don't like to not be in the lineup. I like to play every day. If you're in the lineup, batting first, second, third, fourth, five, I'm happy because I enjoy the game."

That makes owning "The Riot" worth it just for all the runs he'll score.
Don't tase me, bro.

This would be golden for Theriot. I assume his SB's would go up?
