Cubs Place Alfonso Soriano on DL, Recall Tyler Colvin

soriano sucks

It’s been a rough year so far for the Chicago Cubs. They’ve had so many injuries that the lineup resembles a AAA roster on many days. Although they have gotten a lot of bad paper off the books, there’s still a few albatross contracts hanging around their neck; like outfielder Alfonso Soriano, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain today.

The Cubbies recalled outfielder Tyler Colvin from Triple-A Iowa, and he will be available tonight for the Cubs epic pillow fight against the Houston Astros at Wrigley Field. Get ready two of the worst teams in baseball slugging it out!

The Chicago Cubs, Mickey Mouse and plenty of General Managers

Carlos Pena, Adam LaRoche … or will it be Tyler Colvin?

First base is empty for the first time in a long time. Remember when Hee-Seop Choi was the Cubs first-baseman of the future? Yea, it is darn funny to think about that.

And this is just the first of many questions regarding the 2011 installment of the Chicago Cubs.

Will Tom Gorzelanny be traded?

Will Brandon Webb be signed?

Could Paul Konerko become a Chicago Cub?

Will Sean Marshall really remain in the set-up role?

What is Andrew Cashner’s role in 2011?

Will Kerry Wood come back?

Should the Cubs go after Zach Grienke?

Will Jeff Samardzija get a real chance?

As one can see, questions regarding the Cubs are flying around the Internet and some are most likely traveling around a hotel lobby in Lake Buena Vista, Florida as well.
