From a fantasy perspective, the only silver lining is that A-Sore hasn't exactly been doing his best Willie Mays imitation lately:

Last month
29/107 16 3 10 6 .271

Available on my WW is Chris B. Young, who's actually outperformed Soriano in several categories recently:

Last month
25/96 18 7 10 8 .260

From a Cubbie perspective, tho, man that sucks !! :-o

Make that at least 6 weeks......

An MRI revealed a small tear in the right quadriceps of Alfonso Soriano, increasing his estimated time on the sidelines to as much as six weeks.

"The latest from the MRI was that there is a small tear in the quad," manager Lou Piniella said before Monday night's game against Houston. "It's about one centimeter. We think he'll be out four-to-six weeks. We think it will be around Labor Day. We were expecting this. It could have been worse." Well, it is worse than what we were originally told -- that Soriano would only miss two-to-four weeks. This is a mjor blow to a Cubs team that's been baseball's best since early June.

How do you read "as much as 6 weeks" and "four to six weeks" and then say atleast 6 weeks? Do you not know what atleast means?

Soriano already progressing
The News

Alfonso Soriano is expected to join the team in Denver today to continue his rehab work. Close friend Felix Pie said Soriano is already showing improvement, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "He told me he can walk normal now," said Pie, who talks daily by phone with Soriano. "He's not in as much pain."
Our View

This is all well and good, but it doesn't change Soriano's expected return date, which will be at least another couple weeks away.
