News and Notes
Geovany Soto, C, Triple-A Iowa (Cubs)
It√≠s probably wrong to criticize the Cubs at this point, as they√≠ve turned this around 180 degrees from their awful start and now sit just a half-game out of both the National League Central and NL wild card races. Yet, here I go√≥Jason Kendall still stinks, Koyie Hill is hitting an unacceptable on any level .163/233/.288, and yet Geovany Soto is left rotting away in Iowa. It makes no sense. Soto went deep on both Friday and Saturday, giving him home runs in four of his last five games, and even with an 0-for-5 night on Sunday, he sits at .335/.408/.602 in 79 games for Iowa. Even those who bleed Cubbie blue should be having a hard time rationalizing why he√≠s stuck at Triple-A, and why the Cubs even traded anything at all away for Kendall in the first place. (Source)
