Leadoff Hitter

Something that hasn't been discussed in a while that was talked about at length last year was the top of the Cubs order, specifically the Cubs lead-off hitter. We talked endlessly how Soriano is not a lead off hitter and how he needs to drop in the order. Soriano did have 19 steals in 2008 which is nice but he is not the prototypical leadoff hitter that many winning teams have with a high on base percentage or great speed. Soriano's on-base percentage was .344 (43 walks) in 2008. 

What should the Cubs do a the top of their order assuming that Brian Roberts will not be a Cub? Lead off Theriot? Aaron Miles? Grady Sizemore?
