Alfonso Soriano is the best DH in baseball.


Can't argure with that. Do you think he's being scouted for that role somewhere?

I honestly don't know why he hasn't been drawing more interest with the way he's swinging and how much the Cubs would absorb.

Two years on the contract does not help.

Could that have been Ryan's last inning? He's at 80 pitches. And if allowed to continue, would it hurt his 32 scoreless innings performance? I would sit him, but that's just me.

I got him at 78. One more?
5th gives him the win 6th gives him the quality start.

I don't think the streak will factor into the decision. The more likely factor is, how cautious do the Cubs want to be with their best trade candidate?

I think they roll him out there for at least one more.

WTF? Why wasn't Reed sent in to score? There was time when the race to first became serious.
