Soriano in CF?

http://www.cubs.com

Piniella admits in this article that he has considered putting Alfonso Soriano in CF and keeping Jacque Jones in right.

This is what the Cubs, in my humble opinion, should do.  RF at Wrigley is a tougher spot to play, and that fact that Soriano is not a "natural" outfielder should help ease him into his new home with the Cubs.

Besides, Jones has one-year's worth of expeience in RF as it stands.  To put Jones in CF would complicate matters.

I was almost sold on Theriot as a stopgap in CF but still believe that he should come off the bench (as often as possible, mind you).

Jacque Jones, then, might still be traded at any time before or during this season.  Pie must be "ready," though, before this move is made.  

I believe that, rather than moving Soriano back into RF when Pie joins the team, the Cubs should insert Pie in RF because of his defense.  Of course, this would be worked out at a later date.

As for Floyd, I just feel that he is too "old" and "injury-prone."  These are two traits that our "win-now" Cubbies don't need.

Let us know what you think, BCB!
