Alfonso Soriano

When Alfonso Soriano had only four homers in 190 at-bats through May, he was hearing boos from impatient Cubs fans.

Soriano proved with three homers in his first three at-bats last night that the early-season power slump is history.

Soriano was 4for5 with the three homers in the first four innings and the Cubs continued their strong road play by beating the Atlanta Braves 9-1. Soriano is 13for23 (.565) with four homers as the Cubs have won four of five games on their road trip. He hit homers in three straight games last week.

Alfonso Soriano is Simply

the most interesting player

in the Major Leagues…and RED HOT!!!

Having been Pissed On by all 3 MLB teams he has played for yet served them ever so well. The New York Yankees who abandoned him, the Texas Rangers who clearly Screwed him, and the Washington Nationals who abuse him.

“This is what we were looking for,” Cubs manager Lou Piniella said.

Soriano led off the game with a homer off Lance Cormier’s first pitch before adding another first-pitch homer in the second inning.

Soriano’s third homer came in the fourth inning, leaving him in excellent position to become the 16th major-league player – and the first Cub – to hit four homers in a game.

“I was trying to hit it hard and make a good swing,” said Soriano, who walked, grounded out and singled to left in his final three plate appearances.

“Number one, he’s a great hitter,” Braves manager Bobby Cox said.

“Number two, you have to make good pitches to a good hitter. We didn’t come close to doing that.”

The rest of the National League is in BIG trouble.

Is he worth every penny the Cubs invested…

Yes, and More…

GO VOTE FOR HIM FOR THIS YEAR’S
