Can’t we just get this right for once? Here is the latest for today’s game:

Alfonso Soriano will bat second starting Friday, flip-flopping with Ryan Theriot.

And Kosuke Fukudome will bat fifth.

“We want to keep Soriano nice and healthy and strong all year,” Piniella said. “It seems to me, out of the leadoff spot, he’ll want to do too much, run too soon. We’ll see, just take a look at it. (Source)

Can’t we just try the Soriano in the 5th spot with Fukudome hitting 2nd, once? Please? Am I being unreasonable here?Also, what are your thoughts on the new spruced up logo?
