Cardenas in left, eh? I guess I can dig it. I'm glad to see them working him into the lineup instead of burying him on the bench.

Speaking of which, I wonder why Reed Johnson has more PA than Joe Mather.

I'm still wondering why SYTH has a job.

Rizzo had two more homers for Iowa last night.

I can't believe the Cubs continue to use backup IF's in the outfield. Speaks volumes of what they think of Johnson.

Or maybe they didn't want to call up Cardenas only to have him rot on the bench.

True, but why not then let him take at-bats from Barney? Now granted, Soriano is hurt today and somebody had to play LF.

Well and SYTH really does suck. I think Cardenas's future is as a utility man (Four-eyes Shottenhoffen, a whole damn team of utility infielders!!) so I don't have a problem playing him all over.
