WSCR's Mike Murphy went off on a rant yesterday about Lou Piniella moving Kosuke Fukudome from the 3rd spot in the order to the 2nd spot. Murph, in his hyped-up-for-radio paranoia was all worried that this would mess with K Fuk. "Leave him alone," Murph bleated over and over.
So, Lou moves K Fuk to second and what happens? A very good day:
In Tuesday's 10-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, Fukudome singled up the middle in his first at-bat. He hit his first homer of the spring in the third inning before singling in the fourth.
Fukudome moved back to the second spot in the order after hitting third.
"It doesn't really matter," he said.
If only Alfonso Soriano could understand this simple concept. Fukudome is going to be a very easy Cub to like, both in terms of his play and in terms of his approach to the game.
