Slumping left fielder Alfonso Soriano sat for the third time in eight games Wednesday and isn’t happy about it. When manager Lou Piniella spoke to Soriano last week in Pittsburgh and told him he would be giving him a few more days off, Soriano said he understood. But Soriano was miffed when he learned his name wasn’t in the starting lineup Wednesday after he had a pair of hits Tuesday night. “That’s why I’m mad,” Soriano said. “If he had told me yesterday, then I wouldn’t come today ready to play.”
Um, Aldolpho….you haven’t been ready to play all year. Who you crappin?
