Theriot/Cedeno vs. Who?

There's been much debate in the post threads about who should be our everyday shortstop.  I'll reserve who I think should be the everyday guy, but the debate is interesting, if nothing else.

Using our GM hat, and not our Fantasy GM hat, who should be the Cubs SS?  Do we have him on our roster currently?  Remember, as posted on this site a few days ago, you can't just "click, click and click" and trade for a blue-chipper. 

Here's some players that would just be silly to mention, because of their value to their current team.

  1. Hanley Ramirez
  2. Jose Reyes
  3. Derek Jeter
  4. Jimmy Rollins
  5. Troy Tulowitzki
  6. Stephen Drew

That leaves a smattering of names out there that could be a solution.  Granted, I'm not saying trades with the other team would EVER work out. 

  1. Rafael Furcal
  2. Miguel Tejada (the argument for this would be "should have pounced in the winter)
  3. Michael Young
  4. Edgar Renteria (daily spikings of Mike Fontenot may spark the little man for another one-month binge)
  5. Orlando Cabrera (see Tejada, Miguel)
  6. JJ Hardy
  7. Jhonny Peralta
  8. Khalil Greene
  9. Felipe Lopez
  10. Julio Lugo

I'm pretty sure I've included all names that would be considered better or equal to what we have in Theriot/Cedeno.  Feel free to correct.

I'd love to see replies that include who you think we should have gone after in the winter/who we should go after this year, and what you think it would take to get those guys.  Also, I'd love to see replies the other way on why you might think we're good with what we have (along with whether you favor Theriot or Cedeno).
