Soriano will start against Brew Crew!

Thanks to

PHOENIX -- Manager Lou Piniella confirmed Sunday that left fielder Alfonso Soriano, who has been out since Aug. 5 with a right quad strain, will be activated and bat leadoff for the series opener against the Brewers on Tuesday.
That's big for the Cubs, who are being pursued by the second-place Brewers in the National League Central. The Cubs held a 1 1/2-game lead entering Sunday's series finale against the D-backs.
"He's going to play unless he slips coming off the airplane," joked Piniella. "He's ready to go. He's worked hard, and we could wait another week, but he's not going to get any better than he is."
The Cubs have an 8-11 record since Soriano got hurt.

Great news! Lets hope he is 100%! He will be a great boast to this team going into Miller Park. It should be intresting who will be sent to Iowa until Sept 1st. My guess is Murton.

Dont they play in Wrigley this week... not Miller Park?

With the Monroe deal... I would assume Murt is the one sent down. But its going to be a tough choice because basically Lou has got to decide who he wants on the playoff roster, with Sept 1 being the deadline.
