Uncertain for Murton

With Alfonso Soriano blowing a tire last night at Wrigley, his enrollment on the 15-day DL was certain.  Instead of calling up left fielder Matt Murton, – surprise! – the Cubs recalled second baseman Eric Patterson.  Seems like the plan is to send DeRosa to Left for a couple weeks until Soriano can limp back to hit more solo home runs. I would think the fairly hot-hitting Mike Fontenot would fill in admirably at second with DeRosa in the OF.  But they call up Patterson instead?  Something is brewing methinks – why add a potential fourth option at second?  Could Mr Hendry have a deal in the works??  Seems like the future for Matt Murton in blue pinstripes is as uncertain as ever if he’s not called up under these circumstances.
