    I'm pretty sure the Indian fans would disagree.

    The St Louis Browns are in Cleveland now? Sheesh......I can't keep track of all these franchise movements.

    Are the Expos still in Montreal?

    Cedeno has elite range and a very strong arm. He has the talent to become an all-star SS. He's been pretty solid offensively and defensively as of late. Peralta definitely has more pop than Cedeno but has no range and may be better suited for 3B. He would be a downgrade defensively.

    The Pirates can afford to stick with Cedeno and wait for his performance to match his talent, IMO.

    Agreed. I don't think it's any coincidence that Cedeno's improved since Wood arrived. He's getting a nice balance of support from management and competition from Wood...I've more faith in tender Ronny than I've had since we got him.

    I'm in Akron and have watched plenty of Jhonny Peralta. The guy is terrible!!! I don't want him anywhere near my baseball club! The guy has no range and really would be better off at 3B or even RF. He really doesn't hit that well for average and is below average with runners in scoring position. I would rather have Cedeno, but that's just my 20 cents!!!

    I've heard more than enough Peralta horror stories from the Indians fans. The only thing he does better than Cedeno is display his power better. But he still comes with all of the same inconsistencies, and isn't half as good defensively.

    I came across this fanpost at bucsdugout today:

    "by primetime99 on May 23, 2011 1:05 PM EDT
    I never thought in a million years I could write this post but Ronny Cedeno just may be blossoming into a hitter. He has changed his batting stance from being nearly flatfooted to a leg kick and so far it has worked wonders. For the month of May he is quietly batting .333! That's right .333! Ronny has hit safely in 16 of 19 games with 4 multi-hit games out of his last 7! He even hit a homerun..."

    I noticed he changed his stance, which I liked to see since it was as if somebody was finally trying to get this guy to hit the ball, so we'll see what happens.

    You're talking about $5 million-plus for a guy who might or might not hit for average over a full season with slightly below average range at SS 29 years of age. I could think of a lot more worse trade ideas I suppose but to get Peralta we'd be giving up more in value in a trade than the current gap in talent between Peralta and Cedeno which is simply bad decision making. After his past 2 seasons, I don't know if you can realistically assume that over a full season, Peralta will replicate his 2008 numbers (.276 BA | 23 HR's | .803 OPS) which is about what it would take for any consideration of trading for a guy like him

    Tocchet....not only that, but Ronnie (almost called him Cesar....showing my age) hasn't committed an error for over 30 games.

    Might he be finally becoming consistently consistent???

    That's huge for GTL. That stat thrown out there about what he's hitting in May was pretty impressive. I knew he was swinging the bat better but not to the tune of .333

    I have a feeling that Ronny Cedeno is going to disappoint a lot of people. Hopefully I am wrong. He's always been very very talented...just inconsistent. Maybe he's figured it out...I have my doubts.

    Lets put it this way...he's sitting exactly where he ended last year in terms of hitting...exactly...and this isn't the first time he's been on a tear in one month...reference last May+July...or even his whole post-All-Star break performance was definitely above his career numbers. He can't seem to hit vs. RHs
