Cedeno in center for Winter leagues!?!

from cubs.com:

Quote:
Winter League update: Felix Pie was batting .239 in 31 games for Licey in the Dominican Republic Winter League. Pie has two homers, eight doubles, one triple, 13 RBIs and six stolen bases. He's also batting .250 (9-for-36) against left-handed pitchers, compared to .233 (17-for-73) against right-handers.

Ronny Cedeno was batting .324 with 13 doubles in 44 games for Aragua in Venezuela. He's playing shortstop and center field, and has been leading off and batting third for the Tigres.

hmmm.... a backup, backup plan if Pie and Fuld can't get it done?

Yea but Cedeno's Winter League and Minor League numbers have never been able to translate into the Major Leagues.

After that catch that I saw last year and winning AFL MVP and looking at his numbers and that Cubs already gave Cedeno and Pie the chance to prove themselves for a period of time,I say FULD at center!

" ..... Cedeno's Winter League and Minor League numbers have never been able to translate into the Major Leagues ..... "

Classic AAAA. Which is a real shame. Usually this is the product of not being able to hit some manner of breaking ball. Or simply not being able to see the truely superior Major League pitching (can anybody be specific as to what Pie is struggling with ? Something other than meaningless subjective feelings and opinions. Is he just flailing at pitches or is there a pattern to getting him out?).

If he could get over the hump and bring his Major League numbers up to snuff Cedeno could be a very valuable player. I have a feeling he plays an exceptional CF (or any of the 3 - left, center, right). I am not the least bit worried about the Cubs defnse in center (or left or right) and I think one of the 3 (Pie, Fuld, Cedeno) will hit well enough. Either that or Patterson or Pagan may step up as well. Competition is great - especially when they are motivated by the possibility of million dollar contracts. The Cubs have greater concerns than offense from the 8 slot in the order. Dempster and Marquis for example - that worries me. How do the Cubs believe Dempster will be an effective starter ?

Yes, Great catch = starting CF

This is the kind of stuff that gets Torii Hunter $90 Million despite the offensive numbers of Jacque Jones.

+1

Cedeno has shown zip in the bigs...all the Cubs need is yet another .200 hitting guy with no power who can't bunt.
