Remember last September when Alfonso Soriano almost single-handedly pushed the Cubs into the playoffs?
Maybe he's starting a month earlier this season.
In his last 10 games, Soriano is hitting .419 with five homers, 12 runs scored and 11 driven in.

The 1984 season brings back memories both delicious and dreadful for Cubs fans, and now they have a companion piece to compare it to.

Ted Lilly had Alfonso Soriano's back Thursday night at Turner Field, just as he did last year in Atlanta when he was ejected for allegedly throwing at Edgar Renteria after Braves pitchers had treated Soriano like their personal piñata.
