What Cubs hitter do opponents fear when they face us? Right now I would have to say the only person I feel that can do something at the plate is Castro and Ramirez. Byrd is a good hitter but not a deep threat. Pena, Soto and Soriano can't hit a breaking ball to save their lives. I just don't see enough consistent hitting on this team to contend. I hope to be wrong but someone tell me I'm missing something.
