    Soriano out 2-to-4 weeks

    Cubs' Alfonso Soriano out 2-to-4 weeks after injuring quad running the bases against the Mets

    CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Cubs star left fielder Alfonso Soriano strained his right quadriceps during Sunday's 8-3 loss to the New York Mets and will be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks.

    Soriano singled with two outs in the third for Chicago's first hit and then tried to go to third on a single by Ryan Theriot. Soriano pulled up between second and third, favoring his right leg, and tried to hop to third base, where he was tagged out easily. He was then helped off the field.

    "It's going to be a tough loss. I don't know what we'll do," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "Losing Soriano is the toughest thing about this homestand."

    Soriano was replaced in left field by Cliff Floyd, who had been playing right. Mark DeRosa went from second base to right and Mike Fontenot entered the game at second.

    The Mets were leading 1-0 at the time behind Tom Glavine, who became the 23rd pitcher with 300 wins.

    Chicago remained one game behind the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers.

    Sounds like the Cubbies might be in the market for a power hitting outfielder if they could clear waivers.

    After attending a couple of Reds/Cubs games last weekend and having to endure Cubs fans yelling for their pitcher to "hit Freel in the head" I don't feel sorry for the Cubs. I hope they don't make it to a World Series for another hundred years. Better yet, I think baseball should realign the teams and move the Cubs out of the NL central to the AL east. That way they would have to endure Yanks and Sox fans all the time.

    I would never wish an injury on somebody, but if it had to happen to a Cub I'm glad it was Soriano. That little hop he does before he catches a fly ball infuriates me. He needs to knock that off.

    Agreed. There's no fruity little hopping in baseball!

    Im going to be at at least one of the games here in Chicago next week...im surprised Felix Pie hasn't been called back up. I heard on the radio today that the Cubs are looking at Shannon Stewart form Oakland.
