Reed’s Rob Job!

Reed’s terrific catch tops his grab from a year ago in Washington! Love the fact Prince tips his cap to Johnson after the play too.

Johnson replaces Bradley who’s lasted a whopping six games before suffering an injury. Now Lou probably sits M.B. for a couple of games, which is ideal if it keeps him off the DL.

Here’s the rub against Soriano: when he’s Hot he’s HOT…and when he’s Not he’s Not. It’s a give-and-take that’s hard for fans to adjust too – including myself.


Corey Koskie = Reed Johnson

Let’s hope Corey Koskie is this year’s version of Reed Johnson.

He’ll get plenty of playing time with Lou setting aside more off days for his starters, and most importantly, Koskie provides a solid defensive back-up to Aramis at third.

Earlier this week Gordon Edes of Yahoo! Sports chronicled Koskie’s difficult recovery from post concussion syndrome.

The guy’s never suited up in a Cubs’ uni and I’m already pulling for him to make the team.
