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