Just the fact that anyone would think a career journeyman of Sogard's ilk is what this lineup needs....becomes yet another reason that trying to hang for a whole Cub game is such a chore.
I was thinking along the same lines as Beck. He makes contact. Bote is another player like the rest.
I would lead off with Eric and drop Happ down.
I wouldn't mind Sogard at SS for a few games to let Baez figure it out. ESPN was spot on. He is late on his foot tap and he needs to start up and adjust down in the zone.
MLB is going up and he is stuck in a low pitch swing path.
