The lead story here, other than the Perez AAA contract and spring training invite, is that Ronny Cedeno--yes, our Ronny Cedeno--is hitting for some power in the Winter League playoffs.
This raises an important question: If Cedeno, whom is described in the caption beneath his picture and in the article as "light-hitting," has a great spring, does he still go to Iowa, the Cubs bench, or the line-up? And if he's in the line-up, then where would he hit?
If he does play well all around, then a trade would have to be made, right? I could see Cedeno move to second base and DeRosa move to left field. Or, if Izturis isn't healthy, how about putting DeRosa at second and Cedeno back at shortstop?
Remember, folks, this is all speculation, but cubs.com makes it seem like Cedeno has had some kind of revelation this winter.
It should be interesting this spring, though, shouldn't it?
