Somebody has to lead off

and somebody has to bat eighth - that is a given. I think Theriot, if he is going to be in the lineup, needs to be hitting eighth. I am just sick of seeing Soto there. Where to bat him, I really dont know, but at least seventh. He has no protection batting eighth. Im not just talking about the intentional walk he recieved today because even Koy would have been walked there. Soto has power and is hitting .280- the best average on the team for the regulars besides Byrd. I love that he is walking some but we need this guy to hit. Just a thought

The last prototypical leadoff hitter the Cubs had was Kenny Lofton for the last two months of the 03 season and playoffs. He slapped the ball all over the field and wrecked havoc on the basepaths. I thought it was a huge mistake by Hendry to not bring him back for 04. He was the engine that got the offense going for that playoff push. He also was a clubhouse leader in which he was the only one that would get on Sosa's ass.

When Hendry recieved an "Open Checkbook" prior to the 07 season, he would have been better served if he addressed the leadoff position as a more important need than trying to land the biggest fish in the lake (Soriano).
