I heard reports on the radio that Soriano said he will probably start the season at around 75%.
This was from a beat reporter after talking with Soriano, Soriano said the 75%, the repoter then went on to speculate that he would most likley drop in the order to bat 5th, based on the fact that he won't be able to run as well, and would be better suited to be in a spot to drive in runs.
But we all have heard about him batting lower and it hasn't happened yet, so everyone will have to wait and see. I think if the Cubs end up with Roberts its a no-brainer, but I think it should be a no-brainer anyway even without Roberts
I have no link, I'm just paraphasing what I heard on the Radio (WSCR here in Chicago)
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis
Stewie : [watching a baseball game] Why does that man drop his club before he runs? I would bring it with me!
