We know the Cubs’ offense is better than this. But the lack of clutch hitting has cost the Cubs three straight wins and wasted some very good starting pitching as well.
Lou has all the leverage for retooling the lineup, even more so with the Cubs going 1-for-10 with RISP Friday night.
I like Fonsi batting third. Would have liked to see him start the season there, but you can’t argue with his performance at the leadoff spot thus far.
Perhaps, the best part is Soriano doesn’t need to change his approach…he bats like a clean-up hitter from the leadoff spot anyway. And, if he stays there the guy could put up some huge numbers.
Of course, Cubs fans already know this and have pleaded for such a move since Soriano’s arrival. Now it’s done. What’s left to say if it doesn’t work???
