True, but the Braves got caught in a jam when Glavine went down, their 4th starting pitcher now injured, and had to start a reliever. That's often a good formula for success for most opposing teams.

Oh, I wasn't trying to make an excuse for what looks to be an easy win tonight, I'm just saying they caught a break. That said, I'd say they are clearly the best team in the NL thus far. I like that the Cardinals are just 2.5 back, though how they're winning I don't know.

If true, now there's a break for the White Sox.

Soriano KILLED us last year at the Cell, putting us behind 1-0 immediately in all three contests.

So many people want to just concede the NL Central if not the entire National League to the Cubs. I don't think so. They'll have to battle to get to the postseason, just like everyone else.

Hit by pitch and a broken hand. Meh, they went on an absolute tear without him when he was gone for 2 weeks earlier in the year.

They have so many weapons over there that this will probably be only a minor problem for them. That said, he was on a tear himself and on pace for 35 HR and about 100 RBI.

If the Cards can go even .500 the next 3 weeks w/out Wainwright and Albert I'll be convinced they can hang around through the rest of the season.

You are only half right. I just looked it up. Soriano was placed on the DL on April 16. He came off May 1.

Right after Soriano got hurt, the Cubs won six out of seven. However, their worst stretch of the season was from April 24-May 2, at which time they dropped six out of eight. They perked up again when Soriano rejoined the team.

Make no mistake, the loss of Soriano for a significant period weakens them. Fortunately for the Sox, they will play the Cubs during this time frame.

06-11-2008, 10:41 PM
That's gotta suck for him. However, I agree with the posters that say this might just be a minor setback for the hard-hitting Cubs. Then again, as Chet Steadman said in Rookie of the Year, "Hey we're the Cubs, you never know."

JB98

Seriously, if the Cubs are guaranteed division champs because they have a 2.5-game lead on June 11, then all us Sox fans should make plans for October baseball as well. We're up 5.5 on June 11.

There's such a long way to go and so much can happen.

The thing is, Soriano is just one of the many hitters and sluggers in that lineup. He's not even the best player on the team in my opinion. Soriano being out a month isn't as devastating as Pujols being out for a month for the Cardinals.

He's not their best player. Lee is. But he is their most difficult hitter to pitch to. When he's hot, you can't throw him a strike because he'll hit the ball either off the wall or over it.

They are less explosive without him in the lineup.

I think Ramirez and Fukodome are actually better then, or on par with Lee. I think Soriano is their 4th or 5th best player, which shows how deep they really are.

Ramirez needs Lee. Lee doesn't need Ramirez. A couple years ago when Lee got hurt, Ramirez went into a deep funk. He can't carry a team by himself. Aramis is a wing man. He's needs Derrek Lee hitting in front of him to put up the numbers he does.

If you think Fukudome is on par or better than Lee, Soriano or Ramirez, I think you've been reading too many newspapers. Fukudome is not a middle of the order hitter. I didn't watch any of the Flub game tonight, but Fukudome entered tonight's action with just four homers and only 24 RBIs. That's not good production from a No. 5 hitter.

Yeah, the Cubs are a good team. The better team will win the games between the Sox and the Cubs on that day. But at the end of the season, if neither team wins the Series; the 6 games between them mean nothing but an afternoon of baseball in Chicago.

I think he is trying to say that if the White Sox bring the type of game to Wrigley that they have to Detroit, they are going to get their asses handed to them next weekend and this place will become a shrinks chair.

I said it last year, as they approached the playoffs. Pinella didn't have the team he needed, but with a few tweaks, they have a solid chance at it in 2008.

I agree with you that most Sox fans tend to fly off the handle easily (I admit that I might be one of them), but that's what makes these boards so fun to me. You get people's opinions coming out off left field which crack you up sometimes and once in a while there is a gem or two along the way.

I've been on other boards where everything is just plain vanilla and that's not fun. Some of those boards have even been closed for lack of participation because people felt intimidated to state their opinion or stress their anger. Why even post.


Anyway, too bad Soriano got hurt. Gives those ass clown fans an excuse when we take three at their park next week. I like to face the competition with all their weapons, that's just me.

Fukudome would be a great #2. All he does is get on base. (.404 OBP)

They won't be able to do this for about 6 weeks now but have they tried batting #1Soriano, #2 Fukudome and batting Theriot 8th? Not that Theriot is a terrible #2 (.400 OBP).

I got the splint on my pinky finger though, while he will have it on his fourth finger(probably will be alot less uncomfortable) but being a pro athelte i bet he will be on rehab in 4 weeks. That is my prediction

Nonsense. Soriano might be the worst leadoff hitter and left fielder in the NL, but that doesn't make him a bad baseball player. He's got a lot of power and he was hitting .283...

What's the odds Reed Johnson does any better?

Why would they automatically give Reed Johnson the job? He sucks. They're better off putting Derosa in LF and Cedeno at 2B. They also brought up Corey Pattersons little brother, Eric.

I see the Cedeno situation happening, which wouldn't be all that bad. This way, Theriot can lead off and the Cubs lineup might actually be more productive. Who knows. :shrug:

Yep. STL needs Pujols more than the C**s need Soriano, IMO. Other than when Soriano has a good bat, he is not that good. Or, what I should really say is that there is a lot of people who could replace him.
