Replacing Ryan Theriot

By bullpenbrian at 03.24.2011 Leave a comment.

Wednesday’s post had me breaking down the Cubs’ leadoff hitters in 2010. That led me to researching which Cubs led the club in other offensive categories last season. I’ve listed some of the more interesting ones below.

Longest Hitting Streak: 13 games…..Ryan Theriot.
Most Runs Scored: 4………………Ryan Theriot.
Most Hits: 5…………………….Ryan Theriot.
Most Stolen Bases: 2 (3 times)…….Ryan Theriot.

Most Total Bases: 12……………..Aramis Ramirez.
Most Extra Base Hits: 3 (twice)……Alfonso Soriano & Ramirez.
Most Triples: 2………………….Mike Fontenot.

Most RBI: 7……………………..Aramis Ramirez.
Most BB: 3 (11 times) most recently..Bobby Scales.
Most K’s: 4 (4 times) most recently..Micah Hoffpauir.
2-Hit Inning: 1………………….Marlon Byrd.

So what does this tell us about the 2011 Cubs? One, replacing Ryan Theriot could become more challanging than it first appeared. Two, it’s obvious the Cubs need a healthy season from Aramis, and three, it’s apparent runs could come at a premium with the addition of the free-swinging Carlos Pena and the lack of a true leadoff man.
