Ronny Cedeno could fit in my back pocket. He weighs about 165 if he's wearing his Big Boy shoes with the laces (not the velcro). He swings a bat that is slightly thicker than his midsection, and gets carded going into G-Rated movies. Somewhere Ronny's 12-year-old sibling is missing his kid brother.

This is an anomaly. Don't get too excited. I don't know that The Riot is a true big-leaguer yet, but he's much more of a big-leaguer than Ronny Cedeno.

He'll likely max out at 350 ABs unless Theriot goes down for a significant amount of time. He's only worth picking up if Lou decides to ride a hot streak for a couple weeks.

The general consensus in "Cubdom" is that Cedeno has a much higher ceiling and Theriot should be a utility/backup MI; therefore it makes more sense to give those AB's to Cedeno. However, Theriot is the starting SS this season and you can't bench your starting SS 3 weeks into the season, especially when he's playing good ball.

From every thing I've seen on prospect reports, this is exactly the opposite conclusion of most scouts. Cedeno is seen as having a an A+ glove, while Theriot reportedly is far below average. Cedeno is also expected to develop into a much superior hitter. In a keeper league, I'd take Cedeno hands down. This year, Theriot may have the edge because of playing time.
