I just dropped Freel for him, but obviously that's only worth it if Theriot plays every day.
They've never commited to him as a SS. Actually, I'm surprised they played him as much as they did, because they've been pretty convinced that they need Izturis or Cedeno's glove in the lineup. As a Cub fan, I would love to see him out there more, but right now he is just a backup infielder/outfielder. The good news is that he probably won't get sent down when they call up Guzman, because they need the backup infielders, so an outfielder will probably get sent packing (most likely Pie).
